Biography

Rodney Carney (born April 15, 1984 in Indianapolis) recently finished his college career at the University of Memphis. Carney was a senior small forward whom most mock drafts project as a lottery pick in the 2006 NBA Draft.

High School

While at Northwest High School, The Indianapolis Star named Carney as Player of the Year. He also made the Indiana all-star team. Outside of basketball, Carney was the Indiana state high jump champion in his senior year, with a personal best of 6'11".

Early College Career

Carney made the Conference USA all-freshman team in 2002–2003, his first season at the University of Memphis. In the same season, the Tigers made their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1996, but the seventh-seeded Tigers lost in the opening round to Arizona State.

In 2003–2004, Carney showed improvement in his stats. He needed surgery after suffering from a cracked bone above his eye, but he missed only two games. The Tigers again made it to the NCAA Tournament as a seven seed and won their opening round game against South Carolina before losing in the second round against Oklahoma State.

Carney made all-Conference USA second team in 2004–2005. He led the Tigers in scoring (16 points per game) and free throw percentage (73.3%). This season, the Tigers could not reach the NCAA Tournament unless they won the Conference USA Tournament. The Tigers reached the final game against Louisville. They trailed 75-73 when freshman Memphis point guard Darius Washington Jr. was fouled on a 3-point shot with no time left. However, Washington made only the first free throw, and so Memphis lost. Carney had only 5 points and 3 rebounds in the game. In the 2005 National Invitation Tournament, Memphis defeated Northeastern, Virginia Tech, and Vanderbilt before losing in the semifinals to Saint Joseph's.

2005–2006 Season

In 2005–2006, Carney was on the preseason and mid-season lists for the John R. Wooden Award All-American team. Carney improved his stats again, becoming one of the top players in Conference USA. Carney, the only starting senior on the team, helped lead Memphis as one of the top-ranked teams in the country and was named the Conference USA player of the year. Memphis won the 2006 Conference USA Tournament, and entered the NCAA Tournament with a 30-3 record and a number one seed.

In the opening round against Oral Roberts, Carney led Memphis with 19 points and added 5 rebounds when Memphis won 94-78. In the next round, Carney scored 10 points and grabbed 4 rebounds to help Memphis beat Bucknell 72-56. Against Bradley in the Sweet Sixteen, Carney scored 23 points, grabbed 4 rebounds, and added 3 steals to help Memphis win 80-64. Memphis was defeated by UCLA in the Elite Eight, and Carney finished his collegiate career with a five point effort on 2 of 12 shooting.

Scouting Report

a spectacular athlete, maybe the best in this year's draft. Speed is surprisingly good even for someone with his athleticism, as fast as any player in the NBA going up and down the court. Fantastic leaper; can jump out of the gym. However, he appears to only be a one-legged jumper which means he may not be able to get as much elevation in traffic whether driving or going up for rebounds. He has a great 3 point shot, and a smooth touch with nice elevation on his shot all the way out to the pro 3 stripe.
