McNamara played another three years at Syracuse, leading the Orange to the Sweet 16 in the 2004 tournament but losing in first-round upsets in 2005 and 2006. He was drafted No. 1 overall in the 2006 United States Basketball League draft, but elected to try for an NBA career instead. He had brief stints with international teams in Greece and Latvia and with the NBA Development League teams Bakersfield Jam and Reno Bighorns before retiring as a player in March 2009. He returned to Syracuse as a graduate student and student assistant for the men's basketball team in the summer of 2009 and was promoted to an assistant coach in 2011.
