NEW YORK — For some high school players, playing two games in less than 24 hours can be exhausting and limit one’s ability to perform in the second game, but you’d never know it from watching Kelly Oubre play Thursday in his Findlay Prep (NV) team’s 67-59 win over Rainier Beach (WA).
Oubre, the 6-foot-7 wing who is heading to Kansas next season, finished with 17 points and 14 rebounds after playing 18 minutes in the McDonald’s All-American game in Chicago Wednesday night. He is ranked 11th in the Class of 2014 on ESPN and will essentially be replacing Andrew Wiggins, who declared for the NBA Draft a couple days ago.
Oubre talked with SNY.tv about the notion that replacing Wiggins, the potential No. 1 pick, might be a burden for him entering next year.
