Coach Romar on Will Conroy
"Will is a warrior. He's taken and made many big shots over his career. He's had big games on the road. Soft-minded guys don't have big games on the road. Mentally tough kids play well on the road. He's had good road games. He has gotten better at distributing the ball over the last couple years. It's always been his goal to lead the Pac-10 in assists. Maybe this is the year that he can accomplish that."
