No. 9 — Boise State senior forward Daequon Montreal

I think Boise State is going to be better than what some may think. They have three scorers in La'Shard Anderson, Robert Arnold and Montreal. Arnold had 26 against the Aggies in one game and 35 in Las Cruces. Montreal chipped in with 22. Who knows if the Broncos will play the same style though with a new coach.

But Montreal led the Broncos with 14 ppg to go with 5.4 rebounds per game in WAC play once he got comfortable after transferring from Southern Idaho. The 6-8 senior ended up on the all newcomer team. He shot 56 percent from the floor, earning his share of putbacks after averaging 2.4 offensive boards per game. He only started 11 of the 16 WAC games. Perhaps he earned himself a spot in the starting five this year.

No. 8 on Thursday

No. 10 — Nevada's frontcourt trio of forwards Olek Czyz, Dario Hunt and Malik Story.

Thanks for doing is painfully slow, however for an addicted aggie fan, to wait for your next entry! Pretty silly, eh?

I remember Arnold killing us more than Montreal. But I suppose Montreal is a more consistent threat for opponents. I predict your number 8 player is going to be Hamidu Rahman. Just sayin.

Yeah, Arnold is the complete package. He still walked off the court with head hung low because Broncos could not support him. Jimmy tried to cheer him up with the notion that NMSU would give him 30+ mins per game if he transferred. Guy didn't force anything and just let the game come to him. Nice ball player with great athleticism and quicks.
