Not only was Deon a prolific scorer but he also led the team in rebounds all 4 years, shot around 60%, and played good D. When the ball went down low to DT, good things happened and as I recall, most of the offense was centered around doing just that...except when Andy Kaufmann was there firing up 3s and putting spin moves in the lane. I suppose DTs record will eventually be eclipsed by a good 3 pt shooter but probably not by a big man ( 2-pt shooters) because the best go out early now.
