Via Orlando Magic press release:

The Orlando Magic selected guard Victor Oladipo in the first round (second overall) of the 2013 NBA Draft.

Oladipo (6’5”, 214, 5/4/92) appeared in 104 career games during three seasons at Indiana University, averaging 10.7 ppg., 5.2 rpg., 1.7 apg. and 1.55 spg. in 24.6 mpg. He ranks third in Indiana history in career steals (161) and scored 1,117 points with the Hoosiers.

Last season as a junior (2012-13), Oladipo played and started in all 36 games, averaging 13.6 ppg., 6.3 rpg., 2.1 apg. and 2.17 spg. in 28.4 mpg., while shooting .599 (182-304) from the field and .441 (30-68) from three-point range. He helped the Hoosiers reach their second straight trip to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen and Indiana’s first outright Big Ten regular season championship since 1993.

Oladipo set an Indiana single-season record in steals (78) while leading the Big Ten in field goal percentage and steals. He was named First Team All-American by The Associated Press, The Sporting News and the NABC, earned The Sporting News National Player of the Year, and was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year. Oladipo was also a finalist for the Wooden Award and the Oscar Robertson Trophy, given to the National Player of the Year.

The Magic are looking pretty decent now. Not a bad rebuilding effort, must say I've been pleasantly surprised by our young Gm's performance. My only concern is our team might be too good now to get pole position for the Wiggins sweepstake.
