Dylan Windler NBA Draft Primer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - - Belmont University men's basketball senior Dylan Windler (Indianapolis, Ind.) is being considered for selection in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Windler led Belmont to 94 victories and three conference championships in his career, including Power 5 victories over UCLA, Georgia and Vanderbilt. Windler capped his career by helping the Bruins earn their first-ever NCAA Tournament victory with a win over Temple. Two days later, he scored a game-high 35 points as Belmont led sixth-seeded Maryland much of the way before losing in the final seconds.

The Indianapolis, Indiana native ranked fourth nationally in offensive efficiency by noted statistician Ken Pomeroy (Brandon Clarke, Zion Williamson, Matt Rafferty) and became just the fourth Ohio Valley Conference player since 1971 to post at least 1,600 career points and 1,000 career rebounds (Popeye Jones, Kenneth Faried, Chris Horton).
