5 Favorite Moments: Nathan Knight

Magic Box

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.

One thought on “5 Favorite Moments: Nathan Knight

  1. Nathan Knight is just a wonderful guy. We had the pleasure of getting to know him over his years at William and Mary. He was my grandson Justin’s roommate freshman year, and ultimately became a favorite with our entire family. We loved his visits, his kindness and patience with the young kids, and his wonderful personality. I wish Nate all the best as he pursues his life’s goals. He will make a great contribution to whatever organization he is involved with. Good luck, Nate, Anne and Ron Pierce
