Shavlik Randolph is out indefinitely with mononucleosis. The last college basketball player to miss time with Mono? Andrew DeClercq. And you can thank Rick Pitino for that little tidbit. Practically screamed it during the '95 draft.

Just an oddball story. How often do you hear guys missing time for something like this? Not very. Nothing to get.

lilnemo: actually, the last college basketball player that I know of to miss time with mono was Duke's (and now Golden State's) Mike Dunleavy, during the 2000 season. Something about tall, skinny white guys that ill Duke women find appealing, I guess...

Hmm, guess it didn't hit me as odd...one of my friends, star of the track team, had to miss freshman year because of mono.
