Jamar, a 6-foot-5 senior guard/forward from Venice, Calif., was a unanimous first team All-Big Sky Conference selection this season.  He has been named to the first team the last three years in a row, and has been named to Lou Henson’s Mid-Major All-America team and All-District 6 the last two straight seasons.

One of the most versatile players to ever play for the Grizzlies, Jamar ended his illustrious career ranked fourth in school history in scoring and assists, with 1,673 and 407, respectively.  His career totals rank him 13th in Big Sky history in points and 19th in assists.  His 664 career rebounds are the 12th most in school history.  He scored in double figures in 91 of the 121 career games that he played in.
