I’m sure everyone knows about Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett, Cam Reddish, Bol Bol, and Romeo Langford. I am here today to shed some light on one of the most consistent and efficient College basketball players I have ever seen play, and it is not just because he plays for my Alma Mater. He just seems to do everything right, and he is always willing to do whatever the coach asks of him. You need 30+ points? He’s got you. What about a 10 assist night? Yeah he can do that too. Hey we need you to go grab 12 boards. He will get you 15. His name is John Konchar and he is a 6 foot 5 inch Redshirt senior at Purdue Fort Wayne (Formerly IPFW). This, his senior season he is already averaging a blistering 20-10-5 (points, rebounds, assists) while shooting 57% from the field and 40% from distance, and he seems to just keep getting better.
Lets look at career statistics. For his career John Konchar is averaging 15.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 4 assists, .5 blocks, and 2 steals a game. This year he already has seven 20 or more point games and I don’t see him slowing down any time soon. He is one of only two players this season that is averaging over 18 points, 9 rebounds, and leads his team in assists with the other player being Ethan Happ. His four year totals are pretty amazing, 1758 points, 1029 rebounds, 455 assists, 231 steals, and 57 blocks. the kid also throws down some pretty amazing dunks (check out YouTube).
He is the ideal 4 year college basketball player as he has gotten better and better each season. That could be a reason not many have heard of him. Nowadays people only care about those one and dones. He has been named to the All Summit League First team every year, he has been named a mid major All American, and he has beaten big brother Indiana (Twice). If you have never heard of him, I urge you to look up some of his highlights or if you happen to have ESPN+ Purdue Fort Wayne plays a few games on there. All I am saying is this guy can really play and here’s a hot take, I think he could end up being a sleeper pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.
