Olynyk Leads Zags To #8 Ranking

For months the popular question for coach Mark Few was, “Is this the best team you’ve had at Gonzaga?” The last several weeks that question has been replaced by another: “Have you ever had a player improve as much as Kelly Olynyk?” Good question. Good questions, actually. Of the former, Few has stated that he won’t have a firm answer until the season runs its course. Of the latter, Few said, “I’d have to think about that for a couple days, especially from where players came in as freshmen. Rob (Sacre) wasn’t a finished product by any means when we got him, neither was Ronny (Turiaf). Ronny made big, big improvement. “I guess the best thing is we’re talking about Kelly in that light and comparing him to those types of people”/Jim Meehan, SR. More here.

Question: Have you reinvented yourself to get ahead in your line of work?
