Perhaps the greatest Husky of all-time, Roy was under the radar of many Husky fans until his senior season. With the loss of Nate Robinson, Will Conroy, and Tre Simmons, the Huskies were lacking a leader entering the 2005-06 season. Roy not only stepped into that role off the court, but he became a prime example on the court.
Roy was not as athletic as Nate Robinson and he did not really stand-out with one skill in his time at UW. Throughout his senior season, Roy's style of play was described as crafty, deceptive, and smart. He simply could not be stopped by opposing defenses. In his senior year, Roy averaged 20.2 ppg and led the Huskies to a 26-7 record and an appearance in the Sweet Sixteen. Roy was named Pac-10 player of the year and received several All-American honors.
In 2006, Roy was drafted as the No. 6 pick and has since then become one of the NBA's premier players. This past January, Roy's No. 3 jersey was retired, making him one of the two Huskies to hold such an honor.
