With March Madness in the tank, NBA off for at least three months and nothing of relevance on the tube (dependent upon your views of old sporting events being re-aired), I can assure you that you’re not alone.

Thankfully, there’s reason for optimism, particularly in the OSU world. Cade Cunningham, high school’s top-ranked player, is coming to Stillwater next season. If you want to see what he can bring to the table, here’s a look back at fifth-grade Cade Cunningham absolutely wrecking dudes:

Just a glance at the guard skills and you start to question why any coach of his had him playing in the post to begin with, but it worked out well for him, it seems.
