Coach's Comments: "What really sticks out about Ross, along with his basketball skills and IQ, is his leadership. He is a great communicator who competes with the highest character. He can face up, have his back to the basket and run the floor. He comes from one of the best AAU programs in the nation, directed by long-time colleague and collegiate national champion Mike Crotty."
