Marcus Smart is considered by many the best point guard in the nation. The super sophomore shocked the college basketball world when he decided to return to Oklahoma State.
The season hasn’t gone as expected for Smart and his pokes. They’re (16-6) overall and (4-5) in conference play. Smart is still playing like the star he is, but his team has been derailed by injuries and off the court issues.
“I’ve probably built up a little reputation, and I’m not questioning that,” Smart said after the Cowboys’ latest loss — at home in triple overtime Monday to Iowa State — the team’s fourth defeat in its past five contests. “But I’m not the only one flopping. Every team and every player does it to make sure you get the call.”
At least Marcus Smart is honest about his actions.
