70th: - Iowa Energy - Scott VanderMeer, Illinois-Chicago
VanderMeer is a three time Horizon League Defensive First Team winner, and a one time Pacers summer leaguer. He's big, a very good shotblocker, armed with a bit of a jumpshot....and really, really slow. In his senior season at Illinois-Chicago, VanderMeer averaged 10.3ppg, 8.9rpg and 2.5 blocks per game, but shot only 40% from the field. And last season - his first professional campaign - VanderMeer averaged 5.3ppg, 6.2rpg, 1.1spg and 2.3bpg in only 18 minutes per game. He could outproduce or match the production of Steven Hill, but he won't ever have the NBA attention Hill has (rather unjustly) had. Here's some highlights.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
