Peyton Siva "one to watch" according to SI.com

Anyone who watched the man last night in the McDonald's All-American Game would have to agree.

Come November, tune in to a Louisville game. You won't be disappointed.

Future Cardinals point guard Peyton Siva was by far the most fun player to watch this week. Monday, the 6-footer from Seattle was a dark-horse contender in the slam dunk contest, and he threw down a beauty after catching a ball bounced off the side of the backboard.

Wednesday, Siva dished out nine assists and radiated joy on the court. His signature moment came on a breakaway. Texas-bound guard Avery Bradley Jr. ran stride for stride with Siva, but Siva leaped and whirled 360 degrees before he laid the ball in the basket. Later, Siva would joke that he only went with the layup to spare Bradley's pride. "That's my guy, Avery," Siva said. "I'm not going to dunk on him."

Kid's the real deal.
