FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Former Razorback great Jonathan Modica has been named an Allstate® SEC Legend the conference office announced Wednesday morning. Modica will be recognized at the SEC Men's Basketball Tournament March 7-11 at Scottrade Center in St. Louis.


Ranked 12th on Arkansas' all-time scoring list, Modica racked up 1,589 career points in his four years in Fayetteville, leading the Razorbacks in scoring his freshman (2002-03) and sophomore (2003-04) seasons. As a senior, Modica averaged 17.8 points per game in conference play, the seventh-best mark in school history. Modica ranks second in program history in career points against SEC teams with 855, including a 37 -point performance against South Carolina on Feb. 4, 2006, which ranks as the third-most in an SEC game in Razorback history.


After going 9-19 in his freshman season, the Smackover, Arkansas, native helped the Razorbacks return to the NCAA Tournament in his senior season in 2005-06, after a four-year drought. The Razorbacks would go on to make three-straight NCAA Tournament appearances.


Modica was named All-SEC second team in 2004 and 2006 by the league coaches. In 2003, Modica was selected to the SEC All-Freshman team. At 6-5, Modica was as versatile as any guard the Razorbacks has ever had. Modica ranks 10th all-time in program history for career rebounds in SEC play with 258, second among guards, only trailing former teammate Ronnie Brewer.
