Recent Liberty basketball alum Darius McGhee has signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Indiana Pacers.
The signing makes McGhee, a 5’9” guard, the fifth player in Liberty men’s basketball history to sign an NBA deal – joining Caleb Homesley (2020/Washington Wizards), Seth Curry (2013/Memphis Grizzles), Peter Aluma (1998/Sacramento Kings), and Julius Nwosu (1995/San Antonio Spurs).
McGhee competed for the Pacers in the 2023 NBA Summer League. He averaged 6.5 points and 2.0 assists per game.
The Roxboro, N.C., native was a 2022-23 AP All-American honorable mention selection and earned his third straight ASUN Player of the Year honor this past season.
McGhee set the Liberty and ASUN all-time career scoring records and finished his time as a Flame with 2,685 career points. He paced the Flames in scoring and ranked third nationally in scoring average at 22.8 points per game while finishing No. 2 in the country in total points (821).
He also led the country in three-pointers made (162, new program record), finished second nationally in three-pointers per game (4.50) and ended his career ranked second in NCAA history for career threes (529).
