Bilas posted an ESPN Insider article today detailing a "Sweet 16 of relative unknowns who deserve to be center ring with their names up in lights"
No mention of any Zags on the list, but there is WCC representation. Here is what is said of the player every Zag loves to hate:
Omar Samhan, Saint Mary's: Samhan has an amazing old-school feel for the game and is a very instinctive player. While he may not fit the suit, he can play. Samhan makes great decisions in the post, has every move in the book and can drop step, dribble drop, up and under, step through and go over either shoulder with a soft touch and unusual feel with his back to the basket. He averages 21.5 points, 11.2 rebounds and 2.9 blocks per game, and he is tougher than nails. Samhan loves the challenge and has a swagger to his game. He brings it every game, and I love watching him play.
Love him or hate him, the guy brings game and helps raise the level of competition in the WCC. Nice to see him getting some spotlight. Now Zags, send that spotlight crashing down by beating him (I mean SMC) a third time this season in Vegas.
