What They’re Saying

“Damyean has been a very high IQ basketball player. High IQ guys make good decisions; he has been very good at that. He goes two for nine for the 3, but I want him to take those same nine shots next game. He can go nine for nine; he’s that good of a shooter.” Houston coach Kelvin Sampson
