Isaiah Briscoe wants you to realize that Malik Monk is human

If we’ve learned one thing about Isaiah Briscoe in the past few years, it’s that he’s not afraid to speak his mind to reporters. When asked about his teammate Malik Monk’s 20-point performance in the wake of two bad games, Briscoe reminded reporters of something that we often forget: Monk is human. 

“He’s just out there playing every game, trying to win. He’s right here, ask him,” Briscoe said as Monk sat down next to him. “They keep saying you’re in a slump.”

“What kind of slump?” Monk asked.

“That’s what I’m saying,” Briscoe said.

“I’m not in a slump.”

“Then they said you had a bad game yesterday and then you came out hot today,” Briscoe continued. “There’s nothing unusual about that. You have games like that. It happens. He’s not perfect. He’s human.”

After some of the stuff he’s shown us this season, you can understand why we sometimes forget, Isaiah.

    The Wildcats have some strong guards in the game. Monk and Fox are probably the best guard line-up in college basketball? It’s easy to forget that they are only freshmen. Isaiah is a very strong leader on this team. Dom and Mulder give them a special lift off the bench. The Cats are strong with guards. On any given day, either Monk, Fox, or Briscoe are capable of taking over the game.

    Thank you Mr. Brisco for that reminder. Sometimes we tend to forget that we are expecting robotic performances from humans. GO CATS
