Articles about Demonte Harper

June 23, 2011

Demonte Harper - Harper was the "other guy" on the two man Morehead State. Kenneth Faried did everything in the front court, while Harper did everything in the backcourt, and no one else did anything much of anything. (Now that both have graduated at the same time, it's surely going to be ugly there next season.) Being such an important cog against such weak opposition allowed Harper to put up good numbers - 15.5 points per game, 5.0 rebounds per game (the few that Faried missed) and 3.4 assists per game, shooting 43%, 67% and 36%. Harper also made his name with his performance in the NCAA tournament first round upset of Louisville - he didn't play well overall, struggling to find anything against the size and athleticism of the Louisville defense, but he did win the game for them:

Onions is right. There's certainly a good quantity of onions. Unfortunately, Harper averages more turnovers than onions: 3.9 per game, in addition to his mediocre jumpshooting (previous shot excepted). Indeed, there is nothing standout about Harper, except for that one shot and his statline. And his statline came from the weak competition rather than his talent level. To put it into some context, former NBA draft pick Ricky Minard averaged 21.8ppg, 7.3rpg and 5.1apg in his final season at Morehead State, and he never played in the NBA. Nor will Harper.

(Verne Lundquist choked so badly on that sequence.)

[...] The other guys are headed up by Demonte Harper, not a bad rebounder himself, a small scoring guard and pseudo point guard with a worryingly huge turnover rate. But despite Harper's 16 points per game, it is, nonetheless, still all about Faried. For all of Kenneth's Rodman-like contributions, Morehead State lack a point guard, can't shoot a foul shot, have no real size (Faried has a small forward's body), don't defend the three, turn it over too much and can't hit a foul shot. This season, then, will be much like the last time they made the tournament in 2009 - a quick first round exit, highlighted by Faried's awesomeness.
