    Pretty cool to be only player in CUSA to log a triple dbl last season and the first in 27 yrs at UNT.

    Had 9 pts and 8 assists vs USF Dons, so did well vs WCC comp, and averaged 9 assists per game for CBI Tourney.
    Am glad we got him.

    His rebounding #'s are eye popping for a PG.

    - welcome ryan, you will love playing for the zags.

    - I like the pickup, because of his defense and he is active in rebounding.
    - I'm excited to see ryan and admon put the clamps on opposing teams.
    - I suspect ryan will start over ravet, but that is not the important thing, allowing ravet to ease into the pg roll and not be counted on to play 25 minutes a game as a freshman is huge. this will help ravet's development.
    - yes, scoring is not his strength, but we have others who can score, I'd be fine with 5-8 points a game.

    - the key will be can he run the offense, and dish out 5-6 or more assists a game? lots of talent around him, I think ryan will be able to give us 6 or more assists a game.
    - run the offense, give us good defense and this team will be golden.

    So about 50 miles between Woolridge & Timme H.S.'s with Gilder in between.


    A presence in Dallas would be a good thing, eh TZF?


    Does anyone know if Coach Powell has done much recruiting in Texas?

    Solid pickup. I'm a little skeptical on the shooting, its comforting knowing our guards in the past could hit the 3 and keep defenses honest. Hopefully we have enough balance so that he can utilize all his strengths.

    Decent 3pt shooter and a very poor ft shooter. He is very good on the defensive end and solid rebounding guard.
    Love the zags for life

    Can't say anything about his horrible FT shooting, but he shot 35% from 3, that's basically what norvell shot. That's good enough to keep defenses honest.

    In his collge career, Woolridge has attepted 4.8 times as many shots from inside the arc than from 3

    684 2PT attempts
    124 3PT attempts

    As a junior, the ratio was 3.9 times more 2's than 3's for Woolridge, including 56% of shots at the rim.

    What areas were iffy?

    Size and build? Crandall is the same height, same weight, and looked to have a similar plus reach. Geno could play above the rim (recall the alley oop from JP?)
    Quickness? - Geno had the fastest hands and seems like the most "quick" or quick-twitch guy on the team (apart from Clarke, but that's a different position and world).

    I'm hoping Woolridge has a great season, but in terms of size, build, athleticism, speed, etc I think he'll be amazingly similar to Geno.

    The have very similar 2pt% over 3 years. Geno last year shot 56% from 2, which is 4% high than Woolridge's career average.

    Regardless of who starts, Few had to get another PG on the roster. And they were more impressed with him than Derryck Thornton.

    I hadn’t heard that last part. But you are correct, at a minimum we obtained crucial depth.

    With the monsters we have down low this upcoming season, a missed 3 pointer might just be good offense as they should be able to clean up most misses. Just being optimistic.

    These videos are really really good. First, the Zags could really use a player who can penetrate and score inside. It's really something that Perkins could NOT do. Perkins was a very good passer when attacking the basket but he could not score inside. This appears to be Woolridge's strength. And then his passing is really an asset. He runs the pick and role beautifully and we know how much Mark Few loves the pick and role offense. Woolridge is a GREAT pick up by Mark Few. I'm very excited.

    Mark Few and his staff have done a great job with graduate transfers and I'm sure that trend will continue next year. I imagine that Few was somewhat surprised when Norvell decided to move on. However, in the Mark Few way, he accepted the challenge and has been able to find two guys that he believes will handle the team. When comparing Woolridge to Crandall I don't mind at all. He was a great back up point guard and did a lot to help the Zags to a wonderful post season. Finishing in the Elite 8 is certainly a GREAT way to finish the season.

    Go Zags!!!

    There are mentions of an injury in his past (fractured knee cap?). Anyone have details?
