Once again, Youtube delivers.  By following related video links after an original search of “Quentin Richardson,” I came across this gem from March 3rd, 2000.  Watch as Kenyon Martin helps to solidify himself as the ’99/00 Player of the Year by leading his Cincinnati Bearcats past Quentin Richardson and the DePaul Blue Demons in come-from-behind fashion.  He absolutely DOMINATES both ends of the floor throughout the final 3 minutes and 46 seconds of this game.  Try to ignore Dick Vitale as he continuously repeats himself.

All I can say is… wow.  K-Mart showed us everything but the kitchen sink as he went 5-5 for 10 of his 33 points, swatted a pair of shots, and assisted on DerMarr Johnson’s game-winner.  He scored 21 of Cincinnati’s 35 second-half points as they came from 17 down.  Still, all I can come up with is… wow.

You probably noticed that Quentin Richardson was nowhere to be found down the stretch.  He actually led DePaul with 17 points (and 11 boards) in this game, but the only time he touched the ball during the video was on the final possession.  I can’t believe his heave actually connected.  What a crazy finish it would’ve been had he released the ball on time.

This game featured a total of three players who were selected in the first round of the 2000 NBA Draft.  K-Mart went on to be selected first overall by the Nets.  DerMarr Johnson was taken at #6 by the Hawks, and Q-Rich was selected 18th by the Clippers.
