Jannero Pargo


Season Averages

Season TotalsRebounds

Notes: Jannero Pargo earned postseason honors from both the Southeastern Conference (third team, coaches) and the United States Basketball Writers Association (all-district VII). District VII includes all schools in Arkansas, Texas and Louisiana. Pargo led the Razorbacks in scoring (16.6 ppg), assists (3.3), 3-point shooting (.432) and free throw percentage (.781).

The two-time SEC player of the week ended his career fifth on Arkansas' all-time 3-point goals made list with 168 and second to Scotty Thurman (.432) on the all-time 3-point percentage chart (.425). In conference play, he set a school record with 52 three-point buckets while his 119 attempts tied the school mark. His .875 percentage (7-8) in the 94-92 overtime win over then-No. 4 Florida is a school record for a conference game and his .421 career percentage in SEC contests ranks fourth.

Pargo was a two-time SEC Player of the Week selection last season, recorded his fifth 30-point game of the season with his career-high matching 35-point performance at Mississippi State. He is the first Razorback to have five 30-point games in the same season since Todd Day in 1991. Pargo became the first Razorback since Joe Kleine in 1985 to have back-to-back 30-point games by following a 35-point effort against Florida with a 33-point effort at Alabama. Was nine of 19 shooting, including seven of 14 from three-point. Also had six rebounds, six assists and two steals.

Positives: Pargo is becoming more of a point guard in the offseason than he was at Arkansas. He put up 18 assists in a game at Portsmouth and really improved his stock. He can score and is becoming a better playmaker for the league. Now he needs to show that he can hit the long-range shot in workouts.

Negatives: Pargo hasn't been as consistent throughout his career, at least enough to warrant a first-round pick. He's talented and scouts see him as a second-round pick who could develop into a backup point guard in the league. That's where he has to concentrate his game at both ends of the court -- to be an NBA point guard.

Summary: Pargo begins the process as a likely second-round draft pick with the chance to move up in the second half of the draft through Chicago and workouts.
