    Glad that our "buzzer beater" wasn't reviewed. Thanks Wells Fargo.

    hahaha.. I remember staying near my seat while everyone cheered telling the fam "don't bother leaving yet..no way that was good." Felt nice to be on that side of a horrible call. Dirty...but nice

    Similar to HS, he shot near 75% as a jr from the floor. That included a lot of shots behind the arc.

    Seems like a really good kid..had to be tough for him, with all that was being said about his dad here. Glad he's doing so well.

    Yeah, it must have been horrible having your daddy make a million dollars a year while also being a very good player and getting scholarships to play the game he loves...

    btw, I like the kid, but lets not act like he had a tough childhood.

    Theres a difference between a tough childhood and a tough situation. Was he on scholarship when his dad was getting ripped up and down the internet? No, he was a kid in high school.. high school is hard enough without that much attention on your family. And he got scholarships because he earned them.. my point was, as for what happened with his father, that had nothing to do with him and must have been tough..you can't choose your family and when that many people from your town are bashing your dad, its not going to be easy for a kid.

    Anyways.. good for him. Will be interesting to see how far he can take his game

    Re: Doug McDermott

    I watched him in high school and his footwork/technique/instincts were just so far ahead of most high school kids I've seen. I knew he'd have a solid college career

    Re: Doug McDermott

    I would be really curious to see how he would do in a BCS league. He wouldn't score nearly as many points but I think he would still be a very good player. He would still get his points outside but would have a much tougher time scoring in the post.

    But no doubt, he is having a great year so far.

    It's just insane that 2 of the top players in college basketball came from the same high school...and I believe all 5 starters on that team are playing somewhere.

    Tough situation? Compared to who? Please, he probably had it better than 99% of children born on the planet. His dad (who seems like a good man and father, just not a good ISU BB coach) made millions of dollars coaching basketball and gave him some good genetic material, which combined with hard work is going to give him a great career playing a sport.

    You guys need a better understanding of what "context" is.
