Get Him On The Court And He's Trouble
Last night, Courtney Fortson messed around and got a triple double.
It's been over two decades since a Hog baller messed around and recorded a triple double. In fact, in 1984, Alvin Robertson recorded the only Hog triple double in history in a game at Texas. Granted it wasn't against a big name opponent like Texas, but last night freshman Courtney Fortson added his name to the record books by finishing with 20 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds to lead the Hogs to an easy 98-70 win over North Carolina... Central.
Warning to all other SEC freshmen ballers: With Courtney Fortson and Rotnei Clarke on the scene in Fayetteville, Freshman of the Year honors goes through here.
Freakin' North Carolina Central brothers like M.J.
Last night the freshman point guard had a good day
Next up for the Hog hoopsters is Austin Peay next Wednesday at Bud Walton Arena in The Jim Thorpe Classic.
