Coach Romar on Brandon Roy
"Brandon could have an All-American season this year and that is what we are anticipating. He is so talented and he understands that a bigger load is going to be placed on his shoulders this year. He is talented enough to handle that. He is kind of a do-it-all player. He has a high basketball IQ. It's rare, especially in today's game, to have a player as good as Brandon Roy play so unselfishly. When one of your best players is your most unselfish, that carries over. Brandon has a chance to be as good an offensive player as there is in this league."
