Career highlights and awards

Steve Lamarr Hood (born April 4, 1968) is an American former professional basketball player born in Lynchburg, Virginia. In high school Hood starred for DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Maryland, from 1983–86 and was selected as a 1986 McDonald's All-American. He then received an athletic scholarship to play for the Maryland Terrapins men's basketball team. After two seasons, Hood transferred to James Madison University (JMU) to play for coach Lefty Driesell, who recruited Hood from high school. Driesell was the coach at Maryland when he recruited Hood but left the summer before Hood went to play at UMD.

After sitting out for one season upon the transfer per NCAA rules, Hood became one of the most feared players in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA). He started all 60 games for the Dukes and in both seasons with them was named the Colonial Athletic Association Men's Basketball Player of the Year both seasons.

Hood was selected in the second round of the 1991 NBA Draft by the Sacramento Kings (42nd overall).
