Forward Joe Alexander

Under the tutelage of Bob Huggins, Joe Alexander developed into an NBA player. He came to WVU when John Beilein was the head coach but really blossomed when Huggins arrived on the scene in 2007.

As a junior that year, Alexander averaged 16.9 points per game to lead the team. In three NCAA Tournament games, a run ended in the Sweet 16 with an overtime loss to Xavier, Alexander averaged 18 points per game.

He was known for his high-flying dunking ability which can be seen in the Big East tournament.

Against Prairie View A&M in 2007, Alexander had seven blocked shots.

Alexander left after his junior season and was drafted eighth overall by the Milwauke Bucks. His NBA career never really panned out, appearing in just 12.1 minutes per game. He now plays professionally in Italy.
