UCF v Duke
COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA - MARCH 24: Cam Reddish #2 and Zion Williamson #1 of the Duke Blue Devils look for the rebound against Collin Smith #35 of the UCF Knights during the first half in the second round game of the 2019 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament at Colonial Life Arena on March 24, 2019 in Columbia, South Carolina.

When we learned that Cam Reddish had played with a core injury this year we wondered if that affected his shooting. It must have to some extent.

Well now we learn that he also had a broken rib.

So perhaps the narrative should change from he was offensively erratic and with questionable passion to the kid showed a lot of heart and loyalty to play through injuries.

We’ve said it before but these guys are not robots. They’re normal people with huge talents but they bleed just like the rest of us. We shouldn’t judge them strictly on performance.
