Temple graduate Khalif Wyatt (205 cm, Temple’13) is headed to China to begin his professional career with the Guangdong Southern Tigers (CBA). Wyatt was originally in the preseason camp of the Philadelphia 76ers, but unfortunately was released by the team. The Chinese club was more than happy to acquire such an intriguing talent in Khalif.
In his senior year at Temple Khalif averaged an impressive 20.5 ppg and 4.0 apg in 34 games. He was named to the All-Atlantic 10 1st Team and also was the All-Atlantic 10 Player of the Year in 2013. Wyatt was also named to the USBWA All-District II 1st Team and the NABC Division I All-District 4th Team that same year.
