Marcus Camby

Before Coach Cal started recruiting blue-chip talent at Memphis and Kentucky, his first big-time star was UMass standout Marcus Camby. The 6-foot 11-inch defensive standout was the second overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft after winning the Naismith College Player of the Year Award. In the pros he was the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year in the 2006-07 season.
