Ellis had several big games for Alabama, including 19 games in double-digits, 17 games in which he led the team in steals and 10 times he led the Crimson Tide in rebounding
One of his best games was when he poured in a career-best 28 points on 7-of-11 shooting from 3-point range, also career-best marks, to go along with 5 rebounds and 4 steals at then-No. 5 Kentucky in February.
