FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- All game long, Bryant McIntosh (Greensburg, Ind./Greensburg) seemingly couldn’t miss. He blew by his opponents on the Mac Irvin Fire. He rose over defenders to make contested jump shots.
When his team desperately needed a basket to force double overtime at the Spiece Run N’ Slam in early May, his team gave him the ball and he was fouled on a 3-pointer, made two of three free throws and forced double overtime.
It was part of a 32-point effort and while one summer basketball game won’t always make the difference, to understand the growth in McIntosh’s game and how he views himself as a player all that needs to be known is this: At the end of the game, the 6-foot-4 Class of 2014 guard wants the ball.
