Mark Lyon from Schenectady, NY

At 6’1″, he does not have ideal size and certainly is not a pure point guard by any means, but Lyons can attack the basket, keep the defense off balance and penetrate to set up teammates. If he can cut down on some of his turnovers and improve his decision-making (passing and shot selection), Mark Lyons could convince an NBA team to draft the senior Wildcat in the second-round.

Facing the possibility of a one-year suspension, Casey voluntarily withdrew from college on Sept. 11 to preserve his final year of eligibility.
