He many not be the most NBA-ready or the most athletic, but night in and night out, he proves why he is the player the Cats need the most.
Wednesday night was a perfect example. After nearly notching a double-double by halftime, Young made plays all over the court, finishing with 26 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals in an 85-63 win over Mississippi State University.
It’s not just about his points. It certainly isn’t just about his 3-point shooting.
He plays more minutes than anyone else. He takes more shots than anyone else. His presence is felt all over the court, more consistently than anyone else.”
