Big O, Tschiebwe is just insanely awesome and fun to watch

Something tells me this will be a running thread game after game Oscar Tshiebwe with a double-double.

Many scoffed before the season at him averaging 20 points and 20 rebounds a game. Are you still laughing?

If so you try going up against the 6-foot-9, 255-pounder and we’ll hear your thoughts afterward.

Despite Duke overpowering the Cats in nearly every area the big man still managed 17 points and 20 boards. He followed that up against Robert Morris with nearly identical numbers.

The best part is watching just how hard he works for everything he gets. Nothing is handed to him. Big O earns every single stat he records.

Fishback also asked him about his work ethic and would his family and fans be happy with his play, he simply smiled and answered politely.

"“I think they are really happy. I am not a selfish person. I work for a lot of people. I work for all these people who come here that’s why I am here to dominate and make a dream come true and to make everyone happy.”"

Keep doing that and you will clearly be the center of Big Blue Nation’s affection all year.
