Hilarious nugget from Luke Wynn's column on the Jimmy V Classic and Markieff's defensive rebounding:
Early foul trouble on Tuesday limited him to only 24 minutes, in which he had seven boards, but he entered the game as the nation's leading defensive rebounder. Kenpom.com's newly released '10-11 data had Morris grabbing 36.6 percent of available defensive boards -- such an absurd percentage that I was compelled to ask him his secret. This is what he said:
"I've got quick twitches, you know? Once the ball goes up, I just find out where it's coming off. Most of the time, I don't even block out. Because I've got a knack for just going and getting it. Most of the time I just outsmart them -- go around them, fight around them, things like that."
So there you have it: It's not the fundamentals, it's the quick twitches.
