"I remember one game when … we played Notre Dame Prep," he said. "We were down three with probably five seconds to go. We had a chance to tie it. I was open, but I passed up the shot. I swung it again. Coach Jere Quinn said, 'If you want to be a big-time player, you have to take that shot. It doesn't matter if you make it or miss it. You have to take that shot.' Really, ever since then, I've always been the guy to take the last shot, or at least try to step up into the big spotlight."
