Coach Jim Ronan's quote: "Ever since the Bishop Guilfoyle game where we needed to win out to get into the playoffs, he has been in a zone. He's focused and doesn't think anyone can stop him. That's what you need right now. He's been a leader on both sides of the ball for us. The two shots he made at the buzzer this past week, I've never seen anything like it. It was unbelievable''
