Center Jamie Smalligan

Jamie Smalligan is yet another WVU player synonymous with postseason success.

He played just two seasons for the Mountaineers, 2007 and 2008, but he helped jumpstart the West Virginia program under Bob Huggins.

Smalligan stood 7-foot and had 12 blocked shots in the 2007 season. For being such a big guy, he still sunk 31 3-pointers in his brief career.

In 2007, West Virginia won 26 games and advanced to the Sweet 16. In 2008, the Mountaineers won 23 games and also made the tournament.

Smalligan wrapped up his career with an Academic Big East honor.
