4th: - Texas Legends - Matt Rogers, Southwest Baptist

Rogers went to training camp with the Bobcats, after not appearing with them (or with any team) in summer league. He came into camp as one of the great unknowns, largely unheralded out of Division 2 Southwest Baptist, and with the added caveat of missing most of his senior season with a torn ACL. At that time, in part 1 of the training camp round-up, I wrote this about him:

Charlotte have since added Matt Rogers, a 6'11 centre out of Division 2 Southwestern Baptist, which sounds more like a profession than a university. Rogers is recovering from a torn ACL that he suffered in January, which won't help his already incredibly limited chances; nevertheless, the Bobcats like what they see. Despite going to such a small school, he didn't have to; Rogers also had offers from Purdue, Georgia and Iowa State, but turned them down in favour of going to a Christian school. In 2008-09, Rogers averaged 18.3 points, 8.7 rebounds and 4.1 blocks per game, shooting 51% from the field, 40% from three and 76% from the line. He made the MIAA All-Defensive Team in all four seasons, was the DPOY twice, and was the overall MIAA Player Of The Year once. No film seems to exist, but here's a really big picture of the man.


Rogers played in 3 preseason games for the Bobcats; in only 14 minutes, he grabbed 8 rebounds, snagged 2 blocks, and got up 7 shots. He missed them all, but the per minute numbers there are pretty special. They're also highly insignificant; nonetheless, they still represent his career to date. Rogers shoots jumpers, blocks shots, is 6'11 tall and is white, so poor man's Raef LaFrentz comparisons are inevitable. It'll be interesting to see how true they are.
