The Big 12 Conference isn’t alone in recognizing how well the freshman guard is playing. College basketball analyst John Rothstein is ground-level on the Duece bandwagon. Back in late November, he mentioned McBride on Twitter.

On Sunday after McBride led the Mountaineers to a win over Ohio State, Rothstein doubled down on his stance as a McBride stock buyer.
