“Justin Hamilton has done a good job for the LSU basketball program,” said LSU Coach Trent Johnson. “His development from the time he arrived prior to the 2010-11 season has been very impressive. During this process, our responsibility as a basketball staff was to make sure we educated Justin and his family of the many challenges that will lie in front of him. He will graduate from LSU this semester and will have his degree in hand. I and the members of our program wish him nothing but the best in his future.”

Hamilton finished 14th in the Southeastern Conference in scoring, ninth in rebounding, eighth in free throw percentage (78.1 percent, 107-137); ninth in blocked shots (1.3 bpg); and, second in offensive rebounds (3.3 orpg).

Hamilton was also a first-team All-District selection by the USBWA and a second-team All-District selection by the NABC.

Huge mistake, late 2nd round pick at best
If he wants to play overseas that's fine but he could've been a late first round, early 2nd next year

He's got a degree and won't improve his stock much. I'd do the same if I were him.

USTIN HAMILTON TO LEAVE LSU TO PURSUE PROFESSIONAL BASKETBALL CAREER

BATON ROUGE – LSU center Justin Hamilton has announced that he will leave LSU following the end of the spring semester to pursue a professional basketball career.

Hamilton spent two years at LSU after transferring following his sophomore year at Iowa State. He practiced with the LSU team during his transfer season of 2010-11 and then played for the TIgers during the 2011-12 season, earning second-team All-SEC honors by the league coaches.

Hamilton played in all 33 games, starting 32, while averaging 12.9 points per game and 7.2 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game, while averaging 30 minutes a game. He had 25 games in double figures with four double-doubles, highlighted by a 27-point performance at Florida and 23 points and 16 rebounds against Ole Miss.

“I would like to announce that I am leaving LSU for the NBA draft,” Hamilton said. “I would like to thank my coaches, the administration and all the teachers that have helped me along the way. They have all provided me with a great experience at LSU. I will graduate next month and I am getting married this summer. I am ready to take the next step in my life. Again, I would like to thank everyone that has helped me along the way and especially the fans here at LSU.”

Hamilton will graduate with a degree in sociology.

re: Justin Hamilton leaving LSU for pros


guy probably wants to get the fvck out of Baton rouge. I don't blame him. Why would he automatically improve his draft stock by staying another year? Is Trent Johnson going to all the sudden utilize him more and coach him up?
