A few years ago, Griz basketball was dominated by Anthony Johnson, a record-breaking point guard with a deadly outside shot, precocious poise and natural leadership abilities. But while Johnson garnered headlines his senior season, he often spoke of a cat-quick freshman that you could tell was being groomed as The Next Big Thing. It’s saying something when you consider Will Cherry may be better than Johnson. With the same poise and leadership skills, and a tenacity on defense to match his improving jumper, Cherry heads into his senior year ready to lead the Griz back to the NCAA tournament and cement his
name in the university’s record books.
