College career

Clark was one of the most prolific scorers in NCAA Division I history, amassing 3,058 points and averaging 25.9 points per game for his career. Not heavily recruited from a Rice High School team in New York City that featured four Division I-bound seniors, Clark became one of the shortest players ever to lead the Division I in scoring at 5 ft 11 (1.80 m), doing so twice.

A guard at Saint Peter's College from 2002 to 2006, Clark scored 435 three-pointers in his college career, briefly holding the record for the most three-point shots made in NCAA history during the end of his senior season. Clark finished as the career leader at the end of the 2006 MAAC tournament, but was soon passed by J. J. Redick, who held the NCAA record for three point field goals made with 457 until 2014 when Oakland's Travis Bader (461+) surpassed him.[3]

Clark finished his career as number six on the list of all-time NCAA scoring leaders. Clark, along with Pete Maravich of LSU (3,667), Freeman Williams of Portland State (3,249), Lionel Simmons of La Salle (3,217), Alphonso Ford of Mississippi Valley State (3,165), Harry Kelly of Texas Southern (3,066), Hersey Hawkins of Bradley (3,008), and Doug McDermott of Creighton as the only eight players to score over 3,000 points in their college careers.

In 2003, he averaged 24.9 points per game, leading all freshmen in Division I. In 2004 he averaged 26.7 points per game and in 2005 he averaged 25.8 points per game; Clark led the nation in points scored per game, becoming just the eighth player to repeat as NCAA Division I scoring champion. He also was one of the Division I steals leaders with 3.3 per game. He is the all-time leading scorer in Saint Peter's College and New Jersey collegiate history. Clark led the MAAC in scoring for all four seasons. He is also the all-time leader in steals and three-point field goals for the Peacocks. Lionel Simmons and La Salle were a part of the MAAC when he scored his 3,217 points.

Pro career

In July 2006, he joined the recently promoted Greek League club Egaleo. On July 19, 2007, he signed a contract with the Italian League club Scavolini Pesaro. In June 2008, he signed a contract with the Greek club Aris Thessaloniki. In June 2010, he signed a contract with the Italian League club Umana Venezia Reyer. In July 2013, he signed with Cimberio Varese.[4] He parted ways with Varese on April 3, 2014.[5]
