Buddy Hield, presented the Oscar Robertson Trophy on Friday as the nation’s top player, was praised by the award’s namesake as being more than just an incredible shooter, unlike Warriors superstar Steph Curry.

“I don’t think any of these players can guard him, just like Steph Curry, they can’t guard him,” Robertson said. “Plus, [Hield] can go inside and he can rebound. It means a lot also other than being [a shooter], he’s a great basketball player.”
