High School:

  • Averaged 21.9 points, 5.9 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.7 steals in leading top-ranked Ballard High School to a 29-6 record before falling to No. 2 Trinity in the Seventh Region title game.
  • Honored as Kentucky's Mr. Basketball, Snider was a first team all-state selection and was ranked 33rd nationally by Rivals.com, No. 38 by 247Sports.com, No. 40 in the ESPN 100 and was rated the seventh-best point guard in the nation by Scout.com.
  • Career leader in scoring and assists (633) at Ballard. His 2,442 points passed Allan Houston and DeJuan Wheat. His 371 three-pointers (including 34 as an eighth-grader at Fern Creek) rank third in state history.
  • Top scoring effort as a senior was 32 points on three occasions and he handed out a season-best 11 assists against Newport Catholic. He scored 20 or more points in 22 games as a senior.
  • Averaged 19.3 points, 4.5 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 2.0 steals as a junior in helping Ballard to a 32-5 record and the Kentucky state championship game, where the Bruins fell 65- 64 to Madison Central. He was a first-team all-state selection and the Seventh Region player of the year as a junior.
  • UofL greats DeJuan Wheat (1993-97), the Cardinals' No. 2 all-time scorer, and Jerry Eaves (1978-82), the starting point guard on UofL's 1980 NCAA Championship team, were also graduates of Ballard High School.
  • Chose to attend Louisville after also considering Illinois, UCLA, Michigan State and Connecticut.
  • Honored as MVP of the 2014 Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic all-star game after totaling eight points, four rebounds and a game-high nine assists for the winning White team.
  • His combined 64 points in the two games of the Kentucky-Indiana All-Star Games are tied for the third most in the history of the event that dates back to 1940, passed only by George McGinnis (1969) and Oscar Robertson (1956). He had 37 points -- the sixth most ever in the event -- six three-pointers and seven rebounds in the game played in Kentucky; 27 points and five rebounds in the game played in Indiana.

Personal:

  • Born Feb. 14, 1995 ... Son of Scott and Latonda Snider ... Has one younger brother (Cameron) ... Major is undecided.
  • Personal goal at UofL is to win a national championship.
  • Best moment of his athletic career to date was going to the high school state championship as a junior and being named Mr. Basketball in Kentucky.
  • Enjoys hanging with his friends in his spare time.
  • Chose to attend UofL because "I always dreamed to play for Louisville since I was seven, I'm from Louisville and I want to play for my city."
  • Best basketball advice given to him was "always believe in yourself and have confidence."
  • Most proud of earning a college scholarship.
  • Feels Mark Wahlberg would be the best actor to play him in a movie.
  • When he played basketball as a kid, he pretended he was Allen Iverson.
  • Few people know that he is very quiet.
  • Chose to wear number 2 because it was worn at UofL by former Cardinal Ellis Myles, who was Snider's AAU coach.
  • If you walked into his dorm room, the first thing you would notice is pictures of his family.
  • Among reality shows, he feels he would fare best on Love & Hip Hop in Atlanta.
  • Best thing about being a Cardinal is "playing in front of my city."
  • What impresses him the most about Coach Pitino: he pushes you to be great and is a great motivational speaker.
  • Would most like to meet God.
