Madsen Makes CNNSI's Top 50
(NBA Draft projections)
CNNSI 15May00 S2

ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- Stanford University's star basketball player, Mark Madsen made CNNSI's list of the top 50 prospects for the NBA draft. CNNSI reports that the June 28th draft may feature a record number of underclassmen, reducing the prospects of seniors, like Madsen. However, the rating implies that Madsen may be chosen in the draft.

Madsen, known at Stanford as "Mad Dog" for his intense on-court play, has also received attention for his off-court manners and activity. Madsen, a returned missionary who served in Spain, has been an active LDS Church member at Stanford and in the University's LDS Student Association.

Many Mormons will also recognize the name of No. 27 on CNNSI's list. Hanno Mottola of the University of Utah, which has many Mormon fans, may be selected in the draft's first round.
