Team: Oklahoma State CowboysHeight: 6-6 Born: 3/25/1989
Class-Eligibility: Jr-JrWeight: 210 Birthplace: Junction City, AR


Scouting Report

Anderson turned in the most prolific three-year career in Oklahoma State history, earning Big 12 player of the year honors after averaging a league-best 22.3 points while leading the Cowboys into the NCAA tournament for a second straight year. A former McDonald's All-American in high school, Anderson increased his scoring average dramatically each of his final two years at Oklahoma State before he decided to bypass his senior season. He scored a total of 1,811 points to rank fourth on the school's all-time list. His coach in college, Travis Ford, praised Anderson's development as a leader this past season. Anderson said he considered his selection to the Big 12's all-academic team to be his proudest achievement at Oklahoma State, and intends to honor his promise to his mother to eventually earn his degree. Considered one of the most athletic players in the country, Anderson compares favorably to fellow Arkansas native Joe Johnson. There are questions about his outside shooting since Anderson's 3-point percentage went down to a career-low 34.1 percent in 2009-10. Anderson also is not much of a playmaker, never averaging more than 2.4 assists. He showed his versatility with USA Basketball at the World University Games last summer, shooting 52.6 percent and averaging 7.1 points in less than 12 minutes per game.
