  • "MAN, YOU GOT A LOT OF BOOGIE"

    The quote that stuck from assistant U of Kentucky coach, Rod Strickland, commenting on big man DeMarcus’ ability to make agile, small-man moves. Boogie has made some big-time moves since his days at LeFlore Magnet High School in Mobile, Alabama. As a LeFlore Rattlesnake, he was voted to both the Parade and McDonalds All-American Teams. Demarcus spent a year at U of Kentucky maturing further and picking up a sweet nickname. Since being drafted 5th overall in the 2010 NBA draft, Mr. Cousins has gone on to one All-Rookie First Team start, three All-Star appearances and two gold medals with the USA National team. Not bad for a guy with a lot of Boogie.
