Tre Demps Clutch Gene Award Winner

Despite a challenge from kicker Jack Mitchell, the award's namesake holds on to the title.

The 2014-15 athletic year has all but come to a close, and that can only mean one thing: end-of-year awards. Beginning Tuesday, June 2, Inside NU will hand out seven different awards to celebrate the top players, coaches and games of the year in Northwestern sports.

Following a week of your voting, we have landed on our winners. Here's how the Tre Demps Clutch Gene Award broke down.


Tre Demps, Men's Basketball - It's not often that an award gets named after somebody. The honor is reserved for legends like Bill Russell or Roberto Clemente. That should tell you just how clutch Demps has been not only this past year, but throughout his career at Northwestern. He's done things like this. And this. And this. And he's done it on numerous occasions. According to Shot Analytics, Demps' effective field goal percentage in the first half of games in 2014-15 was 45 percent. His effective field goal percentage in the last 10 minutes of games was 58 percent, and in the last 3 minutes of games, it was an amazing 69 percent. There's no way Demps doesn't win this award, right?
