Rotnei Clarke made me look really stupid over the weekend

Rotnei Clarke

In the Flint Journal’s Hotbed Hoops blog, I recently wrote the following about Frankenmuth’s Brad Redford (Xavier) after he was named the second-best shooter in the nation.

Of course, I’m biased toward Redford and so there’s probably never been a better shooter in the history of mankind.

From Hotbed Hoops:

OK, let me get this out the way, post-haste: There’s no way Brad Redford plays second fiddle to anyone in the art of shooting.

With all due respect to Arkansas’ Rotnei Clarke, Brad’s the Bret “Hitman” Hart of shooting: The best there is, the best there was and the best there’s ever going to be.

Recently, Redford was listed on Fox Sports as the second-best shooter in the nation behind Clarke.

I have a feeling that Clarke, as good as he is, wasn’t in the center ring of a big top shooting circus like Redford was in high school.

So, what does Rotnei Clarke do? He knocks down 13 3-pointers in a win over Alcorn State.

Second-best sounds about right.

    Saw him play in High School and he’s a lot quicker than Brad. I’m not sure if his shot is better, but his trigger is quicker.

    That’s was my thing. I don’t know if Redford could get 13 open looks in a game.
