N.C State and Nebraska played a 104-100 overtime thriller on the basketball court last night. It was an entertaining game, as far as meaningless December college hoops games go, but that is not the point.
The point is THIS GUY:
Yes, this is a dude rolling into a fight with his foot in a boot.
I THINK that his name is Trey McGowan. At least that is what it sounded like from the broadcast.
McGowens played two seasons for Coach Jeff Capel at Pittsburgh before transferring to Nebraska at the end of the 2019-20 season.
According to his bio, he started all 27 games, averaging 10.7 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.4 steals per game. He finished fifth in the Big Ten in steals per game and ranked second on the squad in both scoring and assists. McGowens who shot just 32 percent from 3-point range in his first two seasons, raised that number to 37 percent in 2019-20 while going over 1,000 career points.
The 6-foot-4, 196-pound guard from Pendleton, S.C., was second on the team in both scoring (10.7 ppg) and assists (2.3 apg) while ranking among the Big Ten leaders with 1.4 steals per game.
Also per his Nebraska hoops profile: Robert “Trey” McGowens is the son of Bobby and Pam McGowens and was born on May 15, 2000, in Columbia, S.C. McGowens majors in child, youth and family studies and is on track to graduate next summer. He is named after his father and grandfather, but has had the nickname Trey since childhood. He is the oldest of three with one younger brother (Bryce) and sister (Raina). Trey’s father, Bobby, played football at Clemson before transferring to South Carolina State to play both football and basketball. He finished as the school’s all-time receiving leader and helped the school make two NCAA Tournament appearances. Trey’s mother, Pam, played basketball at Western Carolina and is a high school basketball coach. Trey’s younger brother, Bryce, is a freshman on the 2021-22 squad and was a top-25 national recruit.
He is totally useless in the fight.
