Dakota Mathias (WINNER)

Dakota Mathias this guy is a man playing with boys . Seriously if you haven't been following the likes of Eric Gardner , Trevor Andershock and others you need to be brought up to speed . He does it all hitting three game winning shots and handing out an assist in another they went on to win Adidas in Indy . Consider this his team has only a few player on it that have a shot at Div.1 . Yet they have a guy who refuses to lose . They are in the Championship game in Indy today in the Crossroads challenge because of Mathias he scored 27 points trailing EG all stars and (Eron Gordon) by 10 with 6 min. to go Mathias took over scoring 20 second half points and grabbing 10 boards . They won the state challenge in Indy also . This guy is some kind of a freak throw back to the likes of Jerry West and Larry Bird . Yes I said Larry Bird he never seems to get to high or to low . He works hard to get his teammates involved . When this doesn't work he simply scores at will no matter the double and triple teams . He is a WINNER and he wins . He can score from any where on the court . And can pass in traffic like a PG . Painter has been watching his prized recruit very closely with a little bounce in his step . Reports are that he has started wearing a padded vest under his Purdue Polo to help with the stinging feeling in his back from every other coach patting him on it . Yes the man can spot talent early on .

Before the hatters jump on the Larry Bird comment . I am not calling him LB 2.0 I am simply trying to paint a picture of the type of player he is . Birds will to win took lowly ISU to the championship game . And IMO Mathias has that same type of game . Forget the star he does or doesn't have . And remember the wins for me I prefer the wins . His team has one loss in 20 or so games . Dakota is a winner but Purdue fans are the Biggest Winner ! Love My Boilers ! Boiler Up !
