Huskies in the pros: Andre Drummond enjoys career year, Shabazz Napier snags starting spot, Emeka Okafor tries comeback in Korea

Drummond, who played at UConn during the 2011-12 season, doesn’t just lead the league with 16 boards per game (on track for his fourth rebounding crown in five years). He pulls down nearly two more than the next closest player (Clint Capela), while maintaining a rebound percentage that ranks as the second best single-season figure since 1970, per Basketball-Reference. And lest anyone think his stats come cheaply, he also tops the NBA in “contested rebounds,” proving that he works for his boards.
