For three productive years, James Anderson blossomed into a star at Oklahoma State, culminating in a 22.3-point, 5.8-rebound junior season where he won Big 12 Player of the Year.
Back in Oklahoma, and still a Cowboy fan favorite, Anderson is competing in the Western Conference Finals as a member of the San Antonio Spurs.
Today, I wrote a story on the early stages of his stalled career. You can read that here.
But at shootaround before game four, Anderson happily reflected on his historic career at OSU that forever etched him into Cowboy basketball lore.
Always humble and unassuming, Anderson talked everything from Markel Brown’s dunking to Keiton Page’s shooting to his favorite game in orange and black. Enjoy:
You hit a three in the Western Conference Finals the other day. Obviously has to feel good, but doing it in this state, does that make it any sweeter?
JA: It wasn’t the situation I wanted, in a losing effort, but doing it in Oklahoma was cool. It felt good to come back to almost the old stomping grounds. Stillwater is a little bit away, but it’s close enough so I can call it my old stomping grounds.
What do you miss most about Stillwater?
JA: Coaches, teammates, can’t forget about the fans. Great fanbase.
Have you been able to make any trips back?
JA: I haven’t got back too much because of the crammed schedule and the short season we’ve had, but I plan to go back sometime this summer after the season.
