Coach Heath Says: It was important for us to improve our guard play heading into the 2011-12 season. We're excited to have Anthony Collins join the basketball program. He has terrific ball skills and passing skills. Anthony is a pure point guard who can run a basketball team and he has the tenacity to defend at the other end of the court. He should make our guard play go to another level and should make our basketball team a lot better.
