With W&M’s season coming to a premature close, we wanted to take time to pay tribute to a player that will go down as one of William & Mary basketball’s all-time greats: Nathan Knight.
There are, of course, many things we’ll remember fondly about Nathan Knight. The once “raw” prospect out of Syracuse, New York — we had high hopes when he stepped on campus. But what he ended up accomplishing went far beyond our wildest dreams.
Coming within a couple games’ worth of points of breaking Marcus Thornton‘s all-time scoring record, Knight will surely be remembered as the best big man in William & Mary history.
We look forward to seeing #13 hanging in the rafters next to Marcus’ one day, but until then, we reminisce some of our favorite moments of Knight’s career.
