If it’s going to happen, Warren will likely need two of his best games. Throughout his career, he’s been mostly known as a long-range bomber, and his 293 career 3-pointers rank sixth in conference history.

He’s got an uncanny ability to get his shot off in traffic and over taller opponents. Terrance Henry, a 6-foot-9 forward who has played with Warren for three years, says his success almost defies physics.

“He’s a strong-willed guy _ tough,” Henry said. “I’ve never seen anyone like him.”

But through the years, Warren’s evolved from just being a shooter. He’s added a broader repertoire of drives to the basket and mid-range jumpers. He’s also become more of a complete point guard, averaging more than four assists per game this season.

“It’s just the little stuff _ knowing when to slow the pace down and when to speed it up,” Warren said. “It’s a play here and a play there. That’s the difference between the NCAA Tournament or being disappointed.”
