Curtis Borchardt Decides To Stay in NBA Draft
June 19, 2002
Stanford, Ca - Curtis Borchardt has decided to stay in the NBA Draft, and thus his career at Stanford University has come to an end.
Borchardt informed head coach Mike Montgomery of his decision on Wednesday. The NBA Draft is slated for June 26.
Borchardt averaged 16.9 points and 11.4 rebounds per game during his junior season at Stanford. In addition to being named an Honorable Mention All-American, Borchardt was named first team All Pac-10 and led the conference in rebounding and blocked shots.
Borchardt set a school record with 85 blocks this year, and finished his Cardinal career with 146 blocks, second-best all-time at Stanford.
On Tuesday (June 18), Jacobsen announced he would remain in the NBA Draft, and thus would not return for his senior season at Stanford.
'First of all, I would like to wish both Casey and Curtis the best of luck as they move onto the NBA,' said Montgomery. 'They are both fine young men who will be missed by both the program and the University. I believe it was a tough decision for both of them as they had both grown to appreciate what Stanford has to offer, but each for their own personal reason feels that this is the time.'
Jacobsen ended his Cardinal career as the school's third all-time leading scorer with 1,723 points. Jacobsen's name appears 39 times in the Stanford record book.
Jacobsen gained numerous honors during his three-year career on The Farm. Jacobsen was a three-time All-Pac-10 selection, and this past year led the Pac-10 in scoring at 21.9 points per game.
Jacobsen and Borchardt helped lead the Cardinal to three appearances in the NCAA Tournament and during that time, the Cardinal chalked up a record of 78-17. The Cardinal also won two Pac-10 titles during their time at Stanford.
