Well, one of the best three point shooters, actually maybe their player, did not play against us the first time we played them. The Banks kid," said Houston Cougars Head Coach Kelvin Sampson.
This season, Banks leads USF with 12.3 points per game, while Jiggetts averages 12.2 points per game. Samuel leads the Bulls with 3.1 assists per game, and junior forward Malik Martin leads the Bulls with 5.0 rebounds per contest.
“They’re big inside. (Isaiah) Manderson is 6’11”. They have a 7’2" kid (Nikola Scekic). Another 6’11" kid (Malik Martin)," Sampson added. "All fifth-year transfers: one kid from Texas Tech; one kid from Penn State; I’m not sure where the other kid’s from. But, they’re all 22, 23-years old.
"But, you know, for us, it’s doing what we do. We’ve got to guard them. We’ve got to defend them the way we defend. Playing hard is not enough. You gotta play smart.
