College of Charleston Says Goodbye to Goudelock

Andrew Goudelock ended his collegiate career ranked 39th all-time in scoring in Division I basketball. During his senior season he averaged 23.7 points per game and scored in double figures in 36 of 37 contests. In 28 games he scored at least 20 points. Tallying over 30 points in a game was not uncommon during Goudelock’s career. However, he was more than just a scorer. He was also the point guard and was pretty much involved in every point College of Charleston scored while he was on the floor. And Coach Bobby Cremins rarely took his star off of the floor.

Goudelock will now look to the NBA after being drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 46th overall pick in the NBA Draft. Meanwhile, the Cougars will have to find another shooter, another point guard and another scorer. That will not be an easy task.

The lone returning guard who has had any real experience is Andrew Lawrence. The junior will likely be starting at the point because of his experience. Lawrence is also a solid shooter and ideally his role would be as a shooter off of the bench, but he does have room to grow. While Lawrence may face a majority of the pressure, sophomore Jordan Scott is carrying pretty high expectations. Scott only averaged 4.1 minutes per game as a freshman, but he could be the all-around scorer this group so desperately needs.

A couple newcomers will be in the mix as well. Shooting guard Trevonte Dixon and point guard Anthony Stitt will have to play quite a few minutes unless Coach Cremins thinks he can move small forward Antwaine Wiggins to the off-guard spot, but that would cause some concerns defensively. That leaves Lawrence, Jordan, Dixon and Stitt to man the two backcourt positions. There is talent there, but not much experience, but that is what happens when somebody like Goudelock eats up so many minutes for four years.
