Keith Sudler competed for the N.C. Wesleyan men's basketball program from 2000 to 2004 and wrapped up his career as one of Wesleyan's top-5 all-time leading scorers at the time. He led his Bishops to four straight winning seasons, which included the 2002 DIAC Tournament Championship and an NCAA Tournament appearance.
Individually, Sudler enjoyed a tremendous career for the Battling Bishops, beginning with a 2000-2001 freshman season that saw him named the Dixie Conference (now USA South) Rookie of the Year. A four-time All-Conference selection, he was a member of the 2003 All-South Region squad and later earned a second straight All-Region accolade during his 2004 MVP senior season.
In 107 games played, Sudler netted 1,664 points and grabbed 558 rebounds. He also knocked down 73 career three-pointers and connected on 82.6% of his attempts at the free throw line. All four statistics remain in Wesleyan's all-time top-10. For his efforts, Sudler was able to continue his hoops career professionally in both Argentina and England. He is a 2004 Wesleyan graduate with a degree in Sociology.
