Marcus Smart is the best freshman in the country no one talks about. I think he is best freshman in the country mostly because of all his skills. He gets in both on both ends of the court. Last night Smart guided his team to victory over Iowa State thanks to, two buzzer beating shots.
Just before halftime Smart made a 60-foot runner to cut the Iowa State lead to 4 points. Smart banked this shot in.
The second half was back and forth between the two teams, then in the final minutes it was time for Smart to shine. OSU had the ball with 12 seconds, Smart was dribbling around and then he attacked the rim and put up another runner that banked in to give the Cowboys the two point victory.
For the game Smart finished with 21 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, and 4 steals. Check out the videos of these two shots below.

We could focus on the obvious and glorify the freshman. After all, Marcus Smart was the hero. It was his last-second floater that gave Oklahoma State the 78-76 victory against Iowa State on Wednesday night in Gallagher-Iba Arena. His stat line was ridiculous – 21 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists and four steals.
When the phone rang Wednesday morning and Dawson Bassett saw the number he had a feeling that this was the call he'd been waiting for, for a long time. When he answered and heard the voice of Oklahoma State head football coach Mike Gundy, he knew it was his call. It didn't take the senior from Tuttle (Okla.) High School long to give Gundy his verbal commitment.
