While it pains me to think what this year’s Longhorns squad would have been with this blur at the 1, I have to put those selfish thoughts away and enjoy the success he’s having at the next level.

Here was a recent highlight:

You can check out more here.

Season stats go like this:

MIN 35

PPG 21

AST 6

REB 5.2

STL 1.2

So Zay and the Vipers are on to the finals to play Raptors 905 coached by Jerry Stackhouse. I’ll be damned if I can find the finals schedule. Anybody know?

One league stat I’ve seen of late:

44% of NBA players on end-of-season rosters had NBA D-League experience…

Hoping Zay gets that chance.
