With an unusual switch from forward to point guard, George McCloud became one of the finest players in FSU basketball history. After posting only average numbers is his first two seasons, McCloud would blossom to lead the Seminoles back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances in 1988 and 1989. He was the MVP of the Metro Conference as a senior and finished his career at the time as the third all-time leading scorer in school history with 1,574 points. He held the school record for most three pointers in a game with 10 against LaSalle in 1989. He averaged 22.8 points per game as a senior on FSU’s 22-8 team. He was a lottery pick by the Indiana Pacers and played 14 seasons in the NBA.
