It’s high noon...
Dru Brown turned a little into a lot
Dru Brown has that California look as the quarterback from San Mateo, Calf., by way of San Mateo College and the University of Hawaii sports two earrings and on senior night, wore a bandana under his helmet that displayed the name of his hometown of San Mateo. He looks like he would be just as comfortable walking a Cali beach with a surfboard as he is throwing a football.
A two-year starter at Hawaii, after starting out at San Mateo College because no schools offered him even a walk-on opportunity out of high school, Brown is anything but a laid back surfer dude. si.com
Demionte Mitchell reflects on his first career start
The sophomore guard discusses his journey from walk-on to starter
"It's truly surreal. A year ago, I was probably at the Colvin Center." @DemionteM bought into @thacoachmike's mantra of hard work, and it's taken him from walk-on to starter. #LetsWork I #GoPokes pic.twitter.com/W8suqODEp4— Cowboy Basketball (@OSUMBB) December 20, 2019
Mike Gundy’s development approach results in a 93-win bottom line
Many people are critical of Coach Mike Gundy’s recruiting approach of finding the “right guys for Oklahoma State,” rather than the star studded ones. Before you reproach him though, keep this stat from the Tulsa World’s Bill Haisten in mind.
As Gundy and Glass ignore or perhaps scoff at the rankings, they can counter with a bottom-line report that includes 93 wins during this decade. It’s the 12th-best total in the country. Within the Big 12, only OU has more wins over the past 10 seasons. Tulsa World
