If Mark Few's quote doesn't boost Gray's confidence, I don't know what will.


20. Steven Gray, 6-5, 210, SG, Jr., Gonzaga: The Zags' top perimeter shooter was 37-of-80 (.463) as a freshman and 51-of-142 (.359) last season.

"If I had Steven's stroke, I would shoot even more than Adam (Morrison) ever thought about it." Gonzaga coach Mark Few



P.S. Look who's Number 1

Steven needs to do a "Rotnei" and shoot 800 balls every day with someone monitoring his gorgeous stroke. He can average 25 ppg with his talent. When he came to us, he was pretty much a long distance shooter. Since then, we knw he's a great athlete and can go into the lane and knock some tough shots down.

He needs to get back to the 46% range with healing of his injury. He could be no 1. He's got the sixe and talent. He get's some grit and determination and he'll be a no 1 scorer. Love the kid. Work work work.......and trust in the outcome. He'll be pressed for his spot by the Canadians who work work work.
Steven has all the talent he needs to get to the NBA. We have him for 2 more years.......let's hope those 2 are super years for Steven.

Portland also gets a mention:


6. Jared Stohl, 6-1, 165, G, Jr., Portland: He's the nation's top returning 3-point shooter at 45.6 percent. He has a career 3-point percentage of .438 and has 147 career 3-pointers. He made 89 threes last season and has also sank three or more 3-pointers in 27 career games.

"Jared is a pure shooter who has honed his craft as only a true gym rat can with an amazing amount of repetition. I almost feel sorry for him now because everyone expects him to never miss." Portland coach Eric Reveno

Portland also gets a mention:

Portland has 2 on the list:


31. T.J. Campbell, 5-9, 190, G, Sr., Portland: He shot a sizzling .531 percent last season but came up just shy of having enough attempts to qualify nationally. He was 76-of-143. If he had four more attempts, he would have led the nation in 3-point percentage. He also was 39-of-69 (60 percent) in league contests.

"T.J. is a great shooter because of his ability and shot selection. As a point guard, it is great he gets others involved, but there were a few times last year where he was shooting it so well we had to think about getting him more shots. It is not lost on us what a luxury it is to have a point guard who both loves getting others shots and can score himself." Portland coach Eric Reveno

Yep, just saw that. I rememberd Campbell being a lights-out shooter and wondered why he wasn't up in the teens. I guess # of attempts disqualifies him? Still 53% (60%!) in league is plain flat-out rediculous like I don't think I've ever seen. Those guys were why Portland was one of the best shooting teams in the country last season.

...and will be a tough game to start the WCC season with, at their home court no less. Let's hope the 3pt D improves substantially.

Go ZAGS!

Strangely, I can't find a pic of Steven's stweet stroke. But I did find these shots of him showing some fire.

Nope. Not Steven. That's Big Will Foster!

Forget the hair. Steven is one toned athlete and is ready to go. I like his new look. The hair will make him seem taller.

I've been looking at Portland's schedule.....I think that they have a descent shot at beating UCLA and Oregon, at Washington will be a good game, it's entirely possible that they split the series with us....they could have only 2 or 3 losses by the end of the regular season unless they have something unforeseen happen. What do you guys think?
P.S. I'm basing my opinions on the fact that they were getting better and better last season, just couldn't quite make it gel in time and have most of that team back. Remember, they have Raivio's little brother and their posts were getting better each game.
