OSU’s Big Game James is big time
Lost amid the hubbub over a coach’s potty mouth and a program in serious rebuilding mode is the makings of a darn good season for one Cowboy.
James Anderson is having a season worthy of consideration for all-conference honors.
Oklahoma State’s sophomore shooting guard is putting together one heck of a resume. He is starting to not only come into his own but also establish himself as a star.
Everyone remembers how Anderson showed signs of greatness early last season. As a true freshman, he lit up OSU’s non-conference opponents. Then when conference play began, his production dipped and his numbers waned. Opponents seemed to figure him out, and he looked lost through much of the Big 12 schedule.
It left everyone to wonder — what kind of player was Anderson going to become, the kind who dominated early last season or the kind who became a non-factor late?
Anderson has answered that question emphatically this season that he intends to be a force.
Through this past weekend, Anderson ranked fourth in the conference in scoring with 17.7 points a game. That puts him behind the likes of Blake Griffin and Craig Brackins, a couple of first-team all-conference shoo-ins. But he ranks ahead of a bunch of really good players – A.J. Abrams, Curtis Jerrells and Sherron Collins among them.
Anderson also ranks seventh or better in field goal percentage, three-point field goal percentage and free throw percentage.
