Coach Bender on Walcott
"With Chris it's all about being consistent. He needs to know that the games he came up big for us last year are not an exception, they have to become the norm. We talked with Chris a lot during the off-season about allowing him the freedom to shoot from the perimeter. Last year people were playing off of him. The priority is for him to really get confident and to know that we need him to shoot the basketball. Chris is a great example of a young man who just wanted a chance to prove that he can play at this level and he has accomplished that."
