Blaine Taylor on Richard Ross: "I couldn't be more pleased with his attitude, work ethic and intent upon doing the right things and doing them well. He brings unique athleticism to the court which is fan friendly. We have got to work hand-in-hand to make sure that in his first year we help him understand how he can fit in now and also build a foundation that will fuel future abilities and skills that will lend itself to a very nice career in basketball."
