Josh McRoberts: Dookie V's Great White Hope

Two years ago all we heard about was how incoming freshman Josh McRoberts was going to join the likes of Jay Bilas, Christian Laettner, Cherokee Parks, and Sheldon Williams as great Duke big men. Now midway through is sophomore year, the player that everyone raved about coming out of Indiana is no where to be found.

So far this year he is averaging 12.9 points, 3.7 assist and 7.9 rebounds per game.

In his biggest game of the year against North Carolina McRoberts played like a kid in the fifth grade, three points are you kidding me. Looking back at class two years ago, you can say that maybe other members of his class have passed him by including: Tyler Hansborough, Brandan Rush, Monta Ellis, and Jon Brockman.

During the game last night Dookie V talked about Duke being a young team, they are but these are not guys that just came off of the street. Gerald Henderson was a five star recruit, so was Jason Zoubek, and the same for Jon Scheyer. Its not like they are not a talented team, may be the problem is that Coach K is not good at developing players.

Oh no I said something bad about Coach K, Dookie V. might show up at my door.
