The Green Bay Packers currently have three players on their roster who played college basketball. They are linebacker Julius Peppers and cornerbacks Demetri Goodson and Quinten Rollins.
Peppers played his first two years at North Carolina, averaging 5.7 PPG and 3.7 RPG over that span. He did not return to basketball for his junior season, instead deciding to focus solely on football.
Carolina was a tournament team during both years that Peppers was on the team. They lost in the Final Four when he was a freshman and lost in the second round when he was a sophomore.
Here’s Julie jamming that alley-oop from Ronald Curry about 50 times on repeat.
Goodson played three seasons of college basketball at Gonzaga before transferring to Baylor to play football. He averaged 5.1 PPG, 2.1 RPG and 2.0 APG in his college career.
The Zags were in the tourney in each of Goodson’s three seasons, but never made it past a regional semifinal.
Goodson did dash the hopes of Western Kentucky once upon a time, though.
Rollins played four years of basketball at Miami (OH) before playing his lone season of football. He has career averages of 6.3 PPG, 3.1 RPG and 3.4 APG.
The RedHawks were a sub-.500 team in each of Rollins’ four seasons, so he never tasted a tournament of any kind.
Here are some combo highlights anyway.
