AT YALE: Draughan, who has started every game since he arrived at Yale, needs only 13 points to become the 20th player in school history to reach 1,000 points. He has led the Bulldogs in scoring in each of his first three years and can become only the third player at Yale to lead the team in scoring for four years. Tony Lavelli (1946-49) and Butch Graves (1981-84) are the others. Last year, he earned second team All-Ivy recognition after finishing 14th in the Ivy League in scoring (11.6 ppg.), seventh in assists (3.22 per game) and tied for 10th in steals (1.3 per game). His 109 career steals are the eighth most in school history. Draughan was named the Most Valuable Player of the Pepsi-Marist Classic last November after scoring 18 points in the win over Coastal Carolina in the championship game and adding 19 points and six assists in the first round victory over Eastern Michigan. He reached double figures in scoring 16 times and led the team in scoring in eight games.
In 2002-03, Draughan was ninth in the Ivy League in scoring (11.4 ppg.) and 12th in three-point field goal percentage (.393). In addition, he was second on the team in three-pointers (35), assists (68), steals (32) and blocks (12). In the first three games of the season, he averaged 16.3 points and was named the first Ivy League Player of the Week.
In 2001-02, Draughan shared the John C. Cobb Memorial Award with Alex Gamboa as Yale's most outstanding freshman. He was eighth in the Ivy League in scoring (11.5 ppg.) and seventh in steals (42). The 42 steals were the sixth most in a season in school history. He was named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week four times and was named as a player on the rise by ESPN.com's Andy Katz in his "Weekly Watch" column. Draughan reached double figures in scoring in 19 games and topped the 20-point mark on four occasions, including tallying a team-high 22 points in the Bulldogs' victory at Penn State. In that game he made 11 of 12 free throws, all in the second half.
