    Demarcus Phillips'

    I watched Demarcus Phillips' play against Southwestern Illinois yesterday afternoon at SCC in a tournament. Here's what I've got on him:
    Demarcus played almost exclusively at the 2 for MCC. He played the whole game except for maybe three minutes. Demarcus ended up with 27, and should have had more, but missed a ton of free throws. He is very quick, and very strong. Defensively, he has a tendency to occasionally miss a rotation, but made up for it with 5 (?) steals. He only shot once beyond the three point line, and was fouled on it, mostly b/c he didn't have too, as Southwestern Illinois, who was actually a solid defensive team, couldn't stop his penetration. He does have a tendency to occasionally play out of control, and had two travel penalties. Late in the game, with about 3 minutes remaining, MCC was down 8. They moved Demarcus to point, and just ran Iso's for him, and he scored 9 points in a row (Two straight and 1's, then fouled on a three) He brought them all the way back, and assisted on a basket with 20 seconds left to tie the game, but Southwestern Illinois managed to hit a bucket with 1.9 seconds left to win.
    Edit: Demarcus also broke a guys ankles so bad he fell down. He did a hesitation move, then double crossovered back to the 18 footer, and the guy fell over that was guarding him
    Best part of Demarcus game:
    Strength
    Athleticism
    Quickness
    Quick hands
    Ballhandling
    Ability to finish through contact
    Rebounding, crashed from weakside multiple times and got put back
    Weaknesses:
    Can play out of control, sometimes not the best at moving w/o ball. Missed free throws.
    And Will Clyburn is much, much improved....almost threw down the sickest dunk I've ever seen in person, very good defensively, very athletic. Still needs work on ball handling though.

    Good Breakdown.. yes! Clyburn is alot better- reminds me of a Wesley Johnson type guy. CYISMYDOG, do you have alot of connection with MCC or did you just go for fun?

    Mostly for fun, although I do have a few connections to MCC.

    Re: Demarcus Phillips'

    Thanks CyIsMyDog for the interesting and interestingly timed comment about Demarcus Phillips. I am thinking if we put this comment, with the info about who is waiting until spring and throw in HB's attire at the BB game Friday night we may have some answers to a question. Added to this feeling is the fact that Doug McD, decided to attend UNI. I guess I just wonder if he knows which way the wind is blowing. If Doug McD thought ISU was HB's destination, with all the implications involved, would not have been more tempting at least to be a walk-on(at the least) and enjoy all the fun!!! While I am sure
    Harrsion Barnes was really impressed with all (most) that happened on Friday, I am thinking we are runners up. Maybe just a lot of isolated incidents but all added together...maybe not!!

    This post by a very knowledgeable poster about ISU BB seems to say alot to me.

    They're isolated incidents....you're reading way too much into it.

    Welcome to this week. We're going to see that a lot. And for any of us who don't post it, we'll probably be tempted to post it.

    We know that everything you post is layered with conspiracies and a lot of reading between the lines. Why don't you just say what needs to be said?

    Or Coe, per workman. We need to find a way to lock out Big XII schools and small Iowa schools. That only leaves us with schools from Tobacco Road to worry about. Enough JEL ads, and no kids will want to go near an area names after tobacco.
