KYLE LOWRY, 2004: NO. 29
A Top-30 prospect and the top player out of Pennsylvania in 2004, Kyle Lowry decided to attend Villanova, spurning offers from UConn, Florida State and Arkansas in the process.
Lowry had two very successful years at Villanova, playing the role of backup to Randy Foye as a freshman before earning the starting job in his second season. His sophomore year, the final one he would spend in college before declaring for the draft, Lowry averaged 11.0 points and 3.7 assists while helping lead Villanova to the Elite Eight, where they finally succumbed to the eventual national champions, Florida.
