Huge Numbers from Standout PG

Chris Douglas-Roberts continues to post eye-opening numbers for his high school team in Detroit, Michigan. After a slow start, things are starting to come together for the Cass Midway Technicians.

"Its been going real good as of late, we're currently on a nine game winning streak," Chris Douglas-Roberts said.

The 6'5" 170 lbs. point guard is scoring 28 points per night, while grabbing 8 rebounds, and dishing out 6 assists.  Douglas-Roberts will be a major college division I point guard, but he's doing more than just running the offense in high school.

"I'm playing all the guard positions and at times in the post as well."  Douglas-Roberts has tallied three triple doubles this year.

There's a ton of legitimate programs interested in Douglas-Roberts.  Some of the major players include Kansas, Oklahoma, Michigan State, Purdue, and Illinois.  Not to mention North Carolina whose come into the picture in the last month.

"I love North Carolina because I love the ACC.  Of course, Carolina is just about as big as you can get." 

The class of 2005 standout indicated he was high on the Big 12 as well.

"The Big 12 is very competitive also.  I watch KU, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State.  The style of play is fast and that's my kind of game."

Douglas-Roberts will not reveal his top five schools until after the season is over which will conclude sometime in March.  However, he did mention Kansas first when reeling off which schools that are sending him letters.  When asked about Aaron Miles, the Detroit product was complimentary.

"Miles is a great traditional point guard.  He's a pass first guy who makes his teammates better."

Douglas-Roberts watches a number of KU's games on television. The future college point guard is an AAU teammate of Malik Hairston.  Douglas-Roberts believes his style of play is different than Miles.

"I love passing, but we're totally different because he (Miles) doesn't shoot that much.  First I was a scorer because I was an off guard before I was a point guard.  I love to pass and I can handle the ball, but I can score as well."      

Douglas Roberts is a big NBA Live 2004 fan.  He plays with the Heat and Nuggets which makes sense because his favorite NBA players are Miami forward Lamar Odom and Denver rookie phenom Carmello Anthony.

"I like Odom's game.  When he keeps himself out of trouble he's a player."

With Miles graduating after next season and no true point guard signed for the 2004 class, Douglas-Roberts appears to be a definite possibility to fill KU's vacancy as the team's floor general. Top Stories
