Ben Madgen, Augusta University

Madgen finished his four-year career in 2010 as one of the most accomplished men’s basketball players in Peach Belt history.  Named the PBC Freshman of the Year in 2007 and the PBC Player of the Year in 2010, he is one of only two men’s basketball players in league history to be named All-Conference four times.  As of his inauguration into the PBC Hall of Fame, he remains the PBC’s all-time leading scorer with 2,306 points and is the only PBC player to surpass 2,000 career points.

Aside from his many individual accomplishments, Madgen was an integral part of the Augusta University teams that made league history by appearing in three straight Elite Eights from 2008-10; something no other league team has ever done.  He played in the 2008 National Championship game and was the leader on a squad that won three straight PBC regular-season championships and the 2009 PBC Tournament championship where he was named tournament MVP.

A native of Williamstown, Australia, Madgen is ranked third in the PBC record books in three-pointers made in a career with 277 and is 15th all-time with his 17.5 scoring average.  A two-time All-American, he was a finalist for the National Player of the Year in 2010.

Madgen had his number, 1, retired by Augusta University in 2010 and received his BBA degree in Management.  He played for five years in the NBL, the professional basketball league of Australia, leading the league in scoring in 2013, before moving on to play professionally in Belgium in 2015.

Madgen and the Jaguars celebrate winning the 2009 PBC Tournament.
