4. Gonzaga: Rui Hachimura


Gonzaga will reload again, as is the norm in Spokane, with the 6-8 Japanese American star. Hachimura averaged 11.6 points and 4.7 rebounds in 20.7 minutes per game last year, including 80 percent from the free throw line, and is prepared to increase his workload.

NBA executives are looking for multidimensional talents who can defend and score against multiple positions. Hachimura is all of that and more. He's one consistent jump shot (5-for-26 from the 3-point line) from making millions at the next level.

Good job! Moms Japanese, dad's from Benin Africa. Sloppy writing by Myron Medcalf.

I saw a glaring error in a similar article, referring to Rui’s season last year as a redshirt freshman.

He was half right.

That's a fairly significant whiff, with all the past stories of Rui's language barriers holding him back.

I guess they could make a mistake like that, but ESPN could also mean star in Japan and America, not referring to nationality. Who knows.

Huh? That doesn't even make sense. Is Tillie now French American or Karno, Polish American? lol Medcalf literally calls him Japanese American, it doesn't get any clearer than that.

Simple, he's in America now becoming a star. Thus, Japanese-American. Perfect. :)
