Josh McRoberts Named McDonalds MVP

Having the best high school hoops player in the country hail from your hometown is cool. Watching him dominate on national television is nothing short of thrilling.

In case you haven’t heard, Josh McRoberts is the real deal, and was awarded MVP honors last night for his 17-point, 12-rebound effort against the best talent in the country. His game has really matured, and Coach K surely liked what he saw last night – I just wish Josh was going to Indiana University. I’m trying to imagine a starting lineup at Indiana that includes the last 3 missed recruits (Sean May, Josh Smith, and now Josh McRoberts). Dynasty anyone?

There is a silver lining – Since he’ll be lacing up for Duke, I’ll get to watch him on the tube quite often. In fact, that trip to Cameron Indoor that Dad and I have been planning for years might finally come to fruition. I’m sure my friends can’t wait to here all about how he’s from my hometown after EVERY SINGLE GAME!
