Carlos Knox Advises NBA Rising Star George Hill
Carlos Knox has worn many hats in the business of basketball. He specializes in working with NBA/WNBA players to help develop their skills as well as rehabilitating injuries. When All-Star & Two time Olympian Tamika Catchings went down with a major Achilles tendon injury in 2006-07, he played a major role in her returning to the court for the 2007-08 season. Carlos has been working with Catchings on skill development since 2000. Knox is a two-time NCAA national scoring champion that brings more than 25 years of basketball experience. He began his playing career at Meadow Dale High School in Dayton, Ohio where he led the city league in scoring his senior season. He then took his talents to college where he had a stellar collegiate career. Attending Indiana University/Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI) he was a three-time All-American and virtually holds every scoring record in school’s history. Carlos went on to be inducted into the IUPUI Basketball Hall of Fame in 2004. He is the only athlete to have his jersey (34) retired in school’s long history.
Fellow IUPUI Superstar George Hill was early entry candidate in the 2008 NBA Draft after he entered the draft following his redshirt junior season. Hill finished fourth in IUPUI history in scoring with 1,619 career points and became the first player in the school’s history to be selected to the NBA and went on to win the coveted NBA Most Improved Player Award. As a senior in high school Hill led the state of Indiana in scoring with 36.2 points per game, he scored 48 points at Northview on 1/17/04 and his 36.2 point-per-game average is the fifth highest single-season average in Indiana High School history.
