Solomon Bozeman (born December 18, 1987) is an American former professional basketball player and current assistant coach for Oral Roberts University. He is best known for his college career at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
Bozeman, son of a college coach, starred at Oxford High School in Oxford, Mississippi for three years as his father served as an assistant at Ole Miss. In 2005, his father was named the head coach at Southern Arkansas University and Solomon played his senior season at Magnolia High School in Magnolia, Arkansas. In his senior season, he averaged 28.5 points per game and led the school to the Arkansas state championship game.
Out of high school, Bozeman signed with South Florida. As a freshman in the 2006–07 season, he averaged 9.6 points and 3.5 assists in 30.6 minutes per game. In his sophomore season, Bozeman saw a coaching change and also saw his minutes per game drop. At the conclusion of the season, he decided to transfer to Arkansas–Little Rock (UALR).
At UALR, Bozeman was a two-year starter. As a senior in 2010–11, Bozeman averaged 16.6 points per game and led the Trojans to their first NCAA tournament bid in 21 years. UALR defeated North Texas in the Sun Belt Conference tournament championship. Bozeman scored 20 points in the final, including the game-winner, and was named Most Valuable Player of the tournament. For the regular season, he was named the Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year and an honorable mention All-American by the Associated Press.
After his college career, Bozeman was not selected in the 2011 NBA draft, but he was taken in the fifth round of the 2011 NBA Development League Draft by the Austin Toros. He started his professional career in Austin, averaging 8 points per game in 12 contests. He spent the rest of the season moving between teams in the Republic of Macedonia, Estonia and Israel. Bozeman returned to the D-League's Texas Legends. He averaged 8.4 points per game for the 2012–13 season.
