Player Bio

Norman W.C. Powell is the son of Norman Sr. and Sharon Powell and has two older sisters. He was born in San Diego, California in 1993, where he played high school ball at Lincoln High. He led the school to consecutive California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) San Diego Section 2A championships in 2009 and 2010. The team also captured the 2010 CIF Division II Boys' State Championship. Powell was twice named to the First Team All-State squad and also won the Western League MVP award twice. Powell then attended UCLA, where he earned a degree in history. He hosts an annual summer youth basketball camp back in his hometown of San Diego. Fans can follow Powell on Twitter (@npowell2404) and Instagram (@normanpowell4). From 2011 to 2015, Norman Powell attended UCLA and led the team to back-to-back Sweet 16 appearances. As a true freshman, Powell played 18 minutes a game and averaged 4.6 points and 0.8 made threes per contest. His playing time gradually increased in each of his next three seasons. He earned nine starts as a sophomore but wasn't a focal point of the offense, forcing Powell to consider a possible transfer to his hometown university of San Diego State. However, a coaching change convinced Powell to stay at UCLA. He then started all 37 games for the Bruins during his junior (2013-14) season, when he averaged 11.4 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.4 steals in almost 26 minutes per game. Powell's staunch defense helped the Bruins make it to the NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16 that season. As a senior, Powell averaged a team-high 16.4 points (sixth in the Pac-12), 4.7 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.8 steals in nearly 35 minutes per contest across 36 games (all starts). Powell also averaged a team-high 17.0 points in five Pac-12 and NCAA Tournament games. With Powell's help, the Bruins again made it to the Sweet 16. At the season's end, Powell was named to the First Team All-Pac-12 squad. Powell was selected with the 46th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks.
