    Here’s an interesting take on the trip as reported by Cantonrep.com. Perhaps the most interesting quote from the story follows below…..

    “I want to become a better vocal leader and team leader, because we graduated three seniors,” said McCollum, now standing 6-3 1/3 and weighing 180 pounds. “I know my game’s going to have to continue to evolve and get better. I’m really focusing on the defensive end this year. I’ve learned I can score the ball with the best of them, but that doesn’t matter if you’re not defending and helping your team on that end.”

    Awesome article. Did I mention this McCollum kid is pretty good? The more I see him the more I wonder how he slid through the cracks of the big-time programs. Not that I’m complaining!

    From all "informed sources," CJ appears to be a good kid and lovin his Lehigh experience. I fear, however, his detractors (and there have are a few pop up on enemy sites) will latch onto one quote in the reference article. That is, "I’ve learned I can score the ball with the best of them,…"
    I choose to believe it’s a sign of confidence and not conceit.
