His versatility made him the only player in Wildcat history to compile 2,000 points, 700 rebounds, 400 assists and 200 steals. The Big East Player of the Year and tourney Most Valuable Player in 1995, Kittles ended his career with a school-mark 2,243 points. A three-time first-team Big East Conference player, Kittles led the league in scoring as a junior, averaging 23.2 points, the first player in VU history to pace the Big East. His career scoring best was a 44-point effort against Boston College in 1995, the fourth-best effort in Wildcat lore. Among the career records the New Orleans has are most three-pointers in a career (278) and most steals in a career (277). He now stars for the NBA’s New Jersey Nets.
