J.T. Tiller was drafted by the Idaho Stampede of the NBDL.
Nov. 2, 2010
Columbia, Mo. - Former Mizzou Basketball standout J.T. Tiller was selected by the Idaho Stampede with the first pick of the eighth round in the 2010 NBDL Draft. Tiller, who starred four seasons at Missouri, finished his career fifth all-time with 131 games played, eighth with 166 career steals and 10th with 332 assists.
"I'm very excited to begin my professional career," Tiller said. "To be honest, it's just great to play at another level of organized basketball. I can't wait to get out there, start training camp and get to work. The head coach called me and said they were excited to draft me. He said they felt like they got a steal in the eighth round, but I really just wanted the chance to continue my playing career."
Tiller was instrumental in the resurgence of Missouri's Basketball program. The gritty 6-foot-4 guard took over the point guard role midway through his sophomore year and promptly led the Tigers to 54 wins during his junior and senior campaigns. In 2008-09 Tiller was named the Big 12 Conference's Co-Defensive Player of the Year and was named to virtually every national all-Defensive unit.
As a senior Tiller helped Missouri to a 23-11 campaign and was once again an all-Defensive Team pick in the league. The Tigers made the NCAA Tournament again under his direction as he averaged 8.9 points and dished a team-leading 101 assists in 31 games.
Tiller is currently visiting family in his home of Marietta, Ga., but will leave for Boise, Idaho, on Monday. Training camp begins on Nov. 9 (Tuesday) and runs through Nov. 17. The Idaho Stampede are affiliated with the Portland Trailblazers and Denver Nuggets of the NBA.
