Quotes

"He's as well rounded as any college guard, able to shoot from deep (39.6 percent), pass (3.7 assists per game) and avoid coughing it up (12-percent turnover rate). He does all of that while routinely defending the opposing team's best perimeter scorer. He isn't blessed with great size (6'2, 176 lbs.) or athleticism, but he's smart."

Tyler Lashbrook, SB Nation

"He’s been through some ups and downs, obviously, and he’s had a great finish to his career. And that’s what you hope happens to a kid that learns and gets better."

Jamie Dixon, Head Coach, University of Pittsburgh
