TAMPA ― Everything about the Pompano Beach point guard, from his surname to his stats to the state title he helped capture for Ely High, seemed conspicuous.

Yet to major-college recruits, Laquincy Rideau may as well have been the name of a New Orleans gourmet.

“He was overlooked,” said legendary Ely coach Melvin Randall, who has won six of his Florida-record eight state titles with the Tigers. “Plain overlooked.”

No other rationale sufficiently explains how Rideau’s staggering debut as USF point guard was preceded by a two-year hitch in Division I obscurity, followed by a season on the sideline. As a teen, his sturdy frame and skill set were there all along, accompanied by nary a red flag.

Wait, a positive article from JK?  Those hacks at TDS should take lessons from him.

It sure lacked insults and innuendo.  Better yet, it seemed accurate.  

Enter into evidence: 

Quote

Bulls second-year coach Brian Gregory said. “I’m excited about coaching him every day because he brings it every single day”

and

Quote

"He accepted the offer from Gregory, who had just been hired to clean up the wreckage left behind by Orlando Antigua."

Touching on two undeniables - Rideau brings it every day and the Antigua disaster (the latter, I am still recovering from).

Informative article.

He is a handful on defense. 

He shapes up to be the kind of guy that can occasionally go off script and hurt you but you accept it because when he is out on the court he plays like he is possessed.  Fearless.  He wants to win.  You don't see him taking off plays.

When he's not mired in his attendance fetish, JK's articles are usually like that ....

I hadn't really pursued anything from the TBT since football season, this was a nice little re-introduction. High fives to our pal joey.
