Victor Oladipo isn’t known for putting up a lot of points. But when needed, the IU signee from DeMatha is certainly capable. Such was the case last night as Oladipo scored a career-high 26 in a 73-69 win over No. 1 Gonzaga.
Josh Barr of The Washington Post talked to the 6-4 forward about his performance:
“When my team needs me to score, I can score the basketball,” said Oladipo, who previously had scored 20 points just once in his high school career. “Just because I don’t usually score a lot of points doesn’t mean I can’t score.”
The upset win wrapped up the No. 1 seed in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference for the Stags, who are 25-3 overall and 16-1 in conference.
