Eyeing IU


Interview MVP

New Mexico State forward Wendell McKines has impressive numbers, averaging 18.8 points and 10.8 rebounds.

He also gives a pretty entertaining interview.

"I don't have a swagger, I have an aura about me," he said Wednesday. "You can just feel the energy. So 'swagger' I wouldn't necessarily use that word. Just the aura in my presence, and you can feel like something special is about to happen."

McKines was also asked about IU comparing him to Michigan State star Draymond Green.

"From rebounding and scoring and what it means to the team perspective, yeah," McKines said. "But I don't really like to compare myself to nobody. I'm special."
