His shooting style is decidedly unorthodox—legs splayed, body lurching forward, the ball released off his palm instead of fingers—but definitely efficient. "I can shoot better with somebody on me and when I'm off balance," he says. "I just aim right over them." In a game against North Texas State last year he had a stretch where he made 20 of 25 shots. With Tulsa trailing by 18 in the second half against Drake, Biles made eight of nine shots in the last five minutes and Tulsa won by a point. He won another game with a last-second shot against St. Louis. For these and other extraordinary feats he has earned the nickname Ice Man.
"It doesn't matter how you guard him," says Sammy High. "Everybody did a good job on him last year. But it didn't make any difference. Against North Texas he went up, I heard a slap when they hit on him and then a swish when he hit on them."
That seems to be the style in Oklahoma. Sticks and stones may break their bones but Biles and Adams will probably beat you. People never knew basketball could be so much fun.
