Coming out of high school, Kansas Jayhawks talent David McCormack was a highly sought after top-30 prospect. So far in his collegiate career, however, the 6-foot-10 big from Norfolk has had a hard time finding minutes in Bill Self’s rotation.
On Tuesday evening, as the Kansas Jayhawks defeated the South Dakota Cowboys, it appears there might be a shift on the horizon.
Everything was coming up season-highs for the big man, as David McCormack not only earned 17 minutes on the floor, but scored 12 points, snagged 6 rebounds, and added 2 blocks for good measure. Obviously, only time will tell if he regularly finds more time on the floor like he did on Tuesday, but it has to be a promising sign for Self nevertheless.
“It felt good that I could contribute to the team,” said McCormack via The AP. “I got more minutes so I got more opportunities.”
With the victory, Kansas improved to 10-0 on the season. The No. 1 ranked team in the nation still has a couple of non-conference games before Big 12 play begins. Next up for the Jayhawks is a tough test against the Arizona State Sun Devils on Saturday.
