Biography

Shan Donte Foster was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks and is currently playing in Europe. Last year at this time, Foster was lighting up the scoreboard for the Vanderbilt Commodores as their shooting guard, becoming the school’s all-time leader in both points and three-point baskets made. Going into his senior year, Foster was regarded as one of the deadliest long-range shooters as proven by his game-high 32 point performance over then top-ranked Tennessee Volunteers and when he hit nine consecutive three-pointers and unleashed a career-high 42 points on the 25th-ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs (his greatest performance in the final home game of his college career). This gave the Commodores their first undefeated season at Memorial since the 1992-1993 season. At the conclusion of the regular season, Foster was named the 2008 SEC Player of the Year by both the SEC coaches and the Associated Press, AP second team All-America, 2008 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award, 2008 Rivals.com first team All-America, 2008 CBS second team All-America, 2008 Dickie V All Solid Gold Third Team and 2008 Sports Illustrated Third Team All America. He graduated from Vanderbilt on May 9, 2008 with a degree in human and organizational development.
