From Bud Withers in tonight's The Seattle Times. http://seattletimes.com/html/gonzaga/2023173228_gonzagamen20xml.html

I think he's profiled every starter now except Stockton. Guessing that will be tomorrow.

Thanks for posting. I was actually thinking about writing up and posting a thread on Sam this morning. But Bud Withers can certainly do a lot better job then I could. Sam is special, and imo he's become a star this year, and I really look forward to his performances in the NCAA tournament this year. I think many fans are going to be surprised.

Go Zags!!!

Favorite excerpts:

“God bless him, he’s got a pulse rate of about 30,” said Few. “We try to call his number and direct things to him, but it doesn’t happen very often. He just kind of falls into stuff. He plays in the flow. Scoring comes easy to him.”

On his recruitment: “I visited other places, but I don’t think they were as cohesive a group as they were here,” he says. “They (others) were in just like for basketball. Here, we get business done on the basketball court, but we’re also friends outside of basketball. I want my teammates to be my friends as well.”

On his limited minutes prior to this year: “I didn’t bring my teammates down, by me not playing,” he says. “I tried to encourage them to do what they needed to do, rather than me being mopey. That stuff can be contagious and affect the team.”

Even loving what he did for us off the bench and admiring him sticking around, I was never a huge believer but he has impressed the heck out of me this year and Im glad to eat crow on this one.

Sam has the cool factor of a Sax player in a jazz band.
