Shumpert Never Fails to Give His All

Iman Shumpert is his own toughest critic. No matter how the Georgia Tech junior performs in a basketball game, he usually believes he could have done more – an extra assist here, a key 3-pointer there, another rebound or two and perhaps a defensive stop when the game is close.

Most people look at his statistics and marvel – he’s the only player in the ACC to lead his team in scoring (17.2), rebounds (6.1), assists (3.5) and steals (2.5). The steals mark leads the league, by the way.

But his effort hasn’t translated into many wins on the basketball court. The Yellow Jackets are 3-11 in the ACC and 11-17 overall. Their game Thursday night at Wake Forest is their final chance to earn an ACC road win.

Some players might throttle back a bit, even unconsciously, in such circumstances. Not Shumpert.
