Dower on ESPN

7

Dower makes ESPN's 10 potential breakout players for 2012-13. I'm looking forward to watching what he can do with more minutes. Sam Dower, Gonzaga: On New Year's Eve 2011, I was in Cincinnati for Gonzaga's big-time road win at Xavier, and while much of the conversation focused on X's ongoing post-brawl struggles, it was impossible not to be impressed by Dower's line: 20 points, 10 rebounds, 7-of-11 from the field. Dower was like a mini-Chris Bosh -- a smooth-shooting left-handed forward at his best in spot-up 15-foot situations. The only problem? Because center Robert Sacre and power forward Elias Harris dominated the Zags' interior, Dower struggled to find minutes as a sophomore. Sacre graduated this spring, which means Dower will get much more time. If I'm a Gonzaga fan, that prospect excites me greatly.
