Each week over the summer, The Juice Online will be counting down the top 15 players in Syracuse basketball history. Hakim Warrick is No. 13 on our list.
WHY HE’S NO. 13: Hakim Warrick will forever be known as the player who preserved SU’s 2003 National Championship, blocking Kansas guard Mike Lee’s potential game tying shot with 1.5 seconds left. By his senior season, he was named Big East Player of the Year and an AP All American after averaging 21.4 points and 8.6 rebounds per game. Warrick will also go down as one of the best dunkers in Syracuse history, earning the nickname, “The Philadelphia Flyer.”
AFTER SYRACUSE: Warrick was taken with the 19th pick of the 2005 NBA Draft by the Memphis Grizzlies. He had his best year in the 2006-07 season, averaging 12.7 points and 5.1 rebounds while appearing in all 82 games for Memphis. Still, Warrick has been more of a journeyman than star, and has played for four different teams in his career. He currently is a reserve for the Phoenix Suns.
