March Memories: Catching up with Byron Mouton

Check out this nice video on Byron Mouton, the only starter on the 2002 Maryland National Championship team that didn't have a career in the NBA.

Mouton's quest to play pro basketball has brought him to the Maryland Greenhawks and the Premier Basketball League. Ironically though, Mouton may have a longer run in the game of basketball than any of his former Maryland teammates.

It's part of our March Memories video series this month celebrating the tournament. The other parts were on Gary Williams, Jim Larranaga and Jeff Jones.

Thanks for that piece. Will always be one of my favorites - along with most of the rest of the NC team.

Did Mouton ever earn some euro-league paychecks? Propbably on Wikipedia.

Yes, he played in France, Germany, China and other places overseas. He earned 6 figures, not a bad way to earn a living.

In case anyone missed it 3 years ago:

He made plenty of money over his career he played over seas up until 2007. Basketball has been very good to Byron and he has had a postive atitude the whole time. He also had a very nice talk show about MD basketball all season long. If you havent heard it check it out.

byron's not kidding about playing anywhere either - i remember seeing him on the next court over one year at the hoop-it-up 3 on 3 tournament. have ball, will travel! :)

it's too bad that goofs like nick young have better shots at the nba than guys like mouton. i'd take byron for my team any day.
