he deserves it...way to go Marcus! we're really playing a great brand of team basketball...and our overall athleticsm is very hard for our opponents to deal with, as they try and execute their offense.

i believe the sky is the limit for this team, and with Marcus leading the way, this could be a very special year.

and just wait till Josh runs on the court.....my goodness, our athletic ability will be off the chart!
