Michael Southall Louisiana Lafayette. 610 236. Senior.


From Wisconsin. Southall had been set to play for the University of Kentucky when he was arrested in May 2000 for delivery and possession of marijuana. He was convicted in 2000, then violated probation and was sentenced to a year in jail. ...In June 2000, Southall entered into a diversion agreement on the charges. Georgia Tech, which made it to the NCAA Final Four this season, later offered him a scholarship for 2001. That, too, was lost when Southall was arrested in April 2001 for violating his bond when he ran from police officers. The diversion agreement was revoked in July 2001 and Southall was placed on probation for three years. The West Salem graduate ended up at Louisiana-Lafayette, where he was Sunbelt Conference Freshman Player of the Year for the 2001-02 season. Academic problems, however, limited him to only one semester of college basketball since that time. In the past year, he said, he spent much of his time caring for his pregnant girlfriend.


  • In 2003 the number 46 pick was Becirovic. Our advice was to select Kyle Korver.
