Alando Tucker is a great college basketball player. Here's an apt summary with a tangent at the end.
If UW forward Alando Tucker is the most or one of the most underrated stars in college basketball, he has to be less so today. He scored inside and out. Spinning past defenders outside, corkscrewing around them inside. He passed. He defended. He brought the ball full court against pressure at the end. He said all the right things to the press in his post-game comments.
Who cares about the post-game press conference? Oh, that's right. The press. Doesn't make him a good basketball player, but I guess it does contribute to whether he's a star.
