Mark Borders

Mark Borders is one of a select few four-year lettermen in Men's Basketball. A starter for three of those years, Borders graduated Dr. Phillips as the all-time leader in assists, averaging 6.1 per game over his career while averaging 9.1 points per game. After graduation in 2001, Borders signed a basketball scholarship with Murray State. MBAfter a season at Murray State, Borders transferred to the University of Tampa in 2002 and quickly made an impact, earning Division II All-American status. Despite only three years at Tampa, Borders shattered the school's all-time assist record and was named the 2006 Sunshine State Conference Player of the Year.

Mark Borders was a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award in 2006, given annually to the nation's top point guard, and after graduation fulfilled a dream by signing on to play professionally in Turkey in 2006. In 2007, he signed on to play in Mexico where he was second in the league in assists. In 2009, Borders landed in Brazil and performed incredibly well with AssisBasket in 2009 and 2010, including notching the league's first-ever triple double.
