COACH ROMAR ON WRENN
"Doug has the potential to control a game. We all know that Doug can score. He has the type of ability from the forward position to put up a triple-double. I can see him being in the top five in the conference in rebounding. Because he is such a good scorer and teams will double team him, I can see him averaging five or six assists. He has the ability to defend the opposing team's best player. He has the ability to take a young team and lead them to great heights. He's got to move from being one of the top scorers in he Pac-10 to a guy that takes his team to great heights. Coach (Jim) Harrick always used to say that `Great players take good teams to great heights.' There are some guys that score and don't win. There are some others that score and defend and rebound and lead. Those guys are really, really good. There are good scorers and there are good players. Doug has a chance to be a really good player."
