He ultimately chose to attend Marquette University, where he led the team to their first Final Four appearance in 25 years. He was subsequently named to the All-American First Team. He was drafted by the Miami Heat in 2003, and chose to leave Marquette during his senior year. Since then, he has excelled with the Heat, and in the NBA. He also led the US team to a Gold Medal in Beijing in 2008. He was expected to play in the 2012 Olympics as well, but was unable to participate due to a knee injury.
