Best College Athlete St. Louis 2007 - Randal Falker
An all-state hoopster during his days at Gateway Tech, Randal Falker has continued his dominant play for the Salukis of Southern Illinois University Carbondale. As a sophomore Falker's explosive rebounding and shot-blocking won him MVP honors at the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. Then as a junior last season, the 6-foot-7-inch forward averaged 12.3 points and 7.7 rebounds per game for the Salukis. Falker led the league in blocked shots and helped SIU advance to the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA basketball tournament. This past summer Falker garnered further honors when he was one of only 30 collegiate players invited to try out for the USA Basketball Men's Pan American Games squad.
