“I personally have Tillie higher on my board than this. He’s possibly the highest-IQ big in this class, an absolutely terrific defender both on the perimeter and at the rim who can also pass the heck out of the ball and knock down shots from 3. That’s the perfect player for anyone, but particularly for what Kenny Atkinson wants from bigs.”

  • Brian Bennett of The Athletic profiled Portland head coach Terry Porter, and his pursuit of turning the Pilots into a cool mid-major like Gonzaga. Bennett also posted his latest WCC Notebook providing some insight into what’s happening around the league.
  • Not directly about Gonzaga, but John Gonzalez of The Ringer took a look at some former NBA stars that are coaching in the college ranks. There’s a good amount of discussion for WCC coaches Damon Stoudamire and Terry Porter (along with Grand Canyon University coach Dan Majerle and Donyell Marshall over at Coastal Carolina), so it’s definitely worth a read.
