Howard Tsumura's brief story (http://www.canada.com/theprovince/news/sports/story.html?id=9d41897e-21bf-4228-99f8-58fef6fa5107) about Rob back on campus for the '08-09 season:

"I knew it was going to be intense," he says of the team's gruelling practices, which were a full level beyond anything The Province's 2007 Head of the Class honoree had experienced over his high school career at Handsworth Secondary. "But it wasn't anything that you could really explain.

"We had some three-hour practices and you had to be so physical. You had to put on your hard hat."

...

"I feel like I have gotten a lot quicker, a lot stronger and a lot faster," says Sacre. "Everything has gotten better in my game."

And embarking on a career at a school with the kind of track record Gonzaga has for churning out NBA players has provided some privileged moments.

"I played with Stockton about a month-and-a-half ago," he relates of Zags alum and NBA all-time assists leader John Stockton. "He's just a really good guy, one of the nicest people you will ever meet. But he's also the most competitive guy I have ever met in my life. He is willing to teach you stuff, but if you're not willing to play hard, then you don't play with him at all."

And current NBA player and Gonzaga alum -- Ronny Turiaf of the Los Angeles Lakers -- has taken a personal interest in his career.

"I've talked to Rony and he'll text me to see how I am doing," Sacre says. "He'll tell me how everything is."

From a sadder but wiser girl, a suggestion to other obsessive-compulsive guboard members: Do not ever share your "impending" fitness program plans with El Voce, because he will haunt you!
