Louis Bullock, Jr. (born May 20, 1976 in Washington, D.C.) is an American professional basketball player. He is currently with the pro club Real Madrid.

Although his records have officially be vacated due to the University of Michigan basketball scandal, his vacated records are unsurpassed for most career 3-point field goals in Big Ten Conference history, and most single-season 3 point field goals in Michigan Wolverines men's basketball history as well as most career free throws in Michigan history.

Amateur career

From Maryland outside of Washington, D.C., Bullock first gained national attention at the now defunct Canterbury Preparatory School (in Accokeek, Maryland) before transferring his senior year to Laurel Baptist. In 1995, he was named Washington Post All Met Basketball Player of the Year. He was also a McDonald's All-American (where he won the three-point contest) and was widely considered one of the nation's top 30 prospects for that year. The McDonald's All-American three-point contest that Bullock won was brought back to the media when ESPN Classic's "Cheap Seats" re-aired it in an episode depicting the contest as well as the 2003 NHL Skills competition. He chose the University of Michigan over numerous other schools, including Florida and Maryland.

Bullock had an impressive career at UM. He would rank third on the school's all-time scoring list with 2,224 points, along with 299 assists, and 137 steals, but all of his and the team's accomplishments while he played have been wiped from the records books because of the University of Michigan basketball scandal in which he and three other Michigan players were given illicit loans by booster Ed Martin. He is the Big Ten Conference's all time leader in three-point field goals with 339, including a school record 101 in 1996. He also made 86.9% of his free throws during his career. His 505 free throws made is more than current record holder Cazzie Russell who had 486 or Manny Harris who had 484 after his junior season.

Pro career

Bullock was selected 42nd overall in the 1999 NBA Draft by the NBA club the Minnesota Timberwolves, and he was then traded to the Orlando Magic for cash considerations. He was signed by the Magic for the 1999 preseason, but he was waived before the regular season began and he never played in the NBA. He has played in Europe every season since his graduation from college. He spent three seasons in the Italian League with M√ľller Verona (1999-01) and with Olimpia Milano (2001-02). Bullock was the leading scorer of the Italian League in the 2001-02 season, with a scoring average of 24.9 points per game.

He then moved to the Spanish ACB League in 2002, playing three seasons with Unicaja M√°laga. In the 2003-04 season, he led the Spanish League in total three-pointers made, making 95 in 34 games. In 2004, Bullock signed with Real Madrid, where he won the Spanish league national championship title in 2005, and he was named the MVP of the league finals. He currently plays for the Madrid club, with which he also won the 2007 Spanish league title and the 2007 ULEB Cup title.
