Admittedly, it’s tough to focus.
As a townie, these are days of giddiness. Syracuse just won the national title; Abbott, Keogh, Hardy, Jamieson, Nims, Sid Smith.
The final :27, the ensuing overtime.
Just may be the greatest comeback in the history of the sport.
But here on¬†Fizz First, it’s back to business and that means looking at a str8 baller in the class of ’10.
We all know dynamic scorer¬†Dion Waiters has committed to the Orange. But what’s the young shooting guard been up to lately?
Eh, just stealing the show at a noted AAU tournament.
Waiters, playing for Team Final, garnered MVP honors as his squad won¬†the Tournament of Champions.
He dropped 27 points in an AAU game – that at least means props from¬†the Fizz.
The combo guard is going to be filling a need for the Orange when he makes his way to the Hill. Andy Rautins will be gone and Brandon Triche will be running the point.
Imagine a backcourt of Triche and Waiters, with the front consisting of Rick Jackson and some combination of James Southerland, Kris Joseph and Mookie Jones.
That’s a high scoring bunch, albeit two years away. Hey, we can dream can’t we?
Plus, watch Waiters drop this.
Notice Big Ronald go nuts in the background. It seems obvious. Waiters¬†has to be another McDonald’s All-American coming to SU. It’s preordained.
