Where Have You Gone: James Gist

February 28, 2008 |

James Gist- you are hiding from me (and the rest of the Maryland fans). You have played like a guy looking for a Developmental League contract- not an NBA contract. You are going to make or break the Terps chances of making it to the “Big Dance ” this year.

C’mon out James…..

In the Terps’ recent losses to Duke, Virginia Tech and Miami, you James- have averaged a mediocre 8.7 points per game, down from 16.4 before the losses began. Since that night, you haven’t made more than three field goals in one game.

Come on out James..stop hiding your “A” game from us “Garyland” fans…

Gist is averaging 18.4 points per game in the 17 wins. In the Terps’ 11 losses, his scoring output has dipped to 11.4 points per game.

My reports have James Gist being drafted as the 17th pick in the NBA draft this year (to the Washington Wizards). I think his stock has dipped considerably because his game this year has been like the stock market– one day it’s great-  and the next day it will make you nauseous.

C’mon James……we’re rooting for you….take the Terps to dance so that I can boogie down with the rest of the fans.
