The best player in school history - an uncanny ability to create his own shot and also getting to the line.

 

I found this messageboard after reading an article about him around the time he was a freshman.

Coming off his NBL POY recognition..looks like Jamar signed a contract to finish out the season with SPO Rouen in France's top league LNB Pro A. He'll be joining former UVM/BC forward Joe Tripani on the team. Tripani was on the UVM team that Jamar and Co. beat for the 2007 title in Burlington.

Didn't Jason Siggers play for Rouen?

Good for Jamar. Some articles / fan boards I read in Australia said that he wasn't going to be more than a 6th man, and wasn't worth the full points (it's a point system cap allocation in the NBL) for a foreign player for any team signing with his next team after Cairns.

Shut those guys up quickly.

Yes before they moved up to the A level.

What a year for UA sports, the Community, the School (losing Nano but, looking like we are gaining a law school), and for our Alumni.

Great Job, Jamar!

If I had to guess, probably $125-150k. At least, in the NBL (Australia). They have a cap of around $1M per team, so to field a 10-12 man roster you'd have to split that up. I'm basing that on the fact that he was a great player in that league and an MVP candidate (don't recall if he won one or not).

A buddy of mine played ball at D2 Chico State and went on to play in a pro league in Denmark. Didn't get payed much, but he has some pretty wild stories about his lifestyle during those years.

according to his facebook and some other places on twitter, Jamar received his Finnish citizenship (his wife is Finnish) and will play for the Finland National Team in the European Championships this year. BIG CONGRATS!
