Eugene McDowell is my all-time favorite player. He was certainly not the best we’ve had and he was really raw. But he played a man’s game. Dude was powerful...when he dunked he was trying to break rims, when he rebounded he was trying to squeeze the air out of the ball and when he blocked a shot he wanted to put it in the rafters. The ODome would erupt when he got after it. I knew him casually and his demeanor off the court was quite the opposite. Very quiet and humble. Very sad he passed so young.
