Hoops - Jarrett Jack Impresses

Nice first outing by our man Jarrett Jack. This from his head coach:

"I thought Jarrett Jack came in and did a really nice job. He gave us a nice pace to the game, calmed us down and got the game under control. He did a nice job and hit a couple of threes. It wasn't a bad first effort because the effort was there. I noticed that this team last year had trouble putting together four quarters of good basketball. They might play well for three quarters and not play well for the others. We want to play a 48 minute game this season."

Here's what Jarrett had to say:

"One thing that Coach McMillan has been preaching to us all week is just play hard. The No. 1 thing I'm trying to do is get out there and play hard and play relaxed. What I tried to do during my entire college career was to keep my shooting percentages on a positive note and hopefully I can keep it going here in the NBA."

What about super high-school phenom Martell Webster?

"Martell (Webster) did okay for the first game. He doesn't have a clue defensively but its what one expects of a high school player coming into the NBA. But he does have NBA stroke and he can really shoot it. Once he gets it on the defensive end he’s going to be a very good player in this league."
