OVERRATED!!!! - How? (In any way actually related to the content of this story)

Doesnt say he's a great player , says He's a good student. Is he not a good student? Should a varsity ballplayer with a crazy travel/practice/class schedule have a GPA higher than that to be considered a good student?

DADDYS BOY! No wonder the National Association of Basketball Coaches gave him the award. His dad called some of his coaching friends and begged them. AGREED OVERRATED!

I can't believe they let these hateful and irrelevant comments be posted and remain here.

Hello...that's a B+ average at Davidson...I'd say he earned it.

I'm sure he's a great student. I'm also sure he worked hard. The truth remains. Jordan Downing would still be at Davidson if Mr. McKillop had actually sat his son down a little and played other players with WAY more future potential like Jordan. It was sad to watch. He would be ice cold in games and shoot and shoot and shoot and stay on the floor. Why during a losing season didn't coach look toward the future more? It was very confusing and frustrating!!
