Doutrive nets career-high 21 points, converts crazy circus shot
Anchorage’s Devonaire Doutrive poured in a career-high 21 points and threw in a ludicrous and-1 circus shot to highlight Boise State’s 83-60 win over Wyoming in the Mountain West Conference.
The junior transfer did his damage in just 25 minutes coming off the bench as he still adjusts to his new team. This was only his third game since joining the Broncos.
He hit his first shot of the night and kept it going, finishing 8-of-13 from the field to reach double figures in scoring for the fourth time in 32 career games at the NCAA D1 level.
Doutrive, of West High fame, was feeling it from deep as he made 4-of-7 3-pointers. That’s another career high, doubling his previous single-game best of two 3s set twice during his time at Arizona.
He played three semesters with the Pac-12 team and recorded a high game of 12 points last season against San Jose State.
The 6-foot-5 guard has a pro-level offensive game and is capable of scoring at all three levels in the half-court set. His finishing touch around the rim is exceptional.
Doutrive showcased his next-level layup package in the first half when he converted a wild circus shot after getting bumped on the drive and throwing up a shot high off glass before falling to the ground. He was fouled and went to the line, where he made his only free-throw attempt of the night.
