Heytvelt ready to take control


With all the change in the GU basketball program this season, there is more pressure on the shoulders of one Zag than any other.

Josh Heytvelt.

The sophomore forward is expected to assume the mantle of offensive leadership held the past couple of years by Adam Morrison – though nowhere near to the same degree.

Still the Clarkston High graduate is being encouraged to take the driver’s seat, a seat GU has always found a way to fill, no matter how empty the car.

John Blanchette examines where Heytvelt stands going into Friday night’s season opener with Eastern Washington and whether or not the 6-foot-11 scorer can get the Zags where they want to go.


Here’s an interesting piece from the University of Virginia student newspaper. It’s about the Cavalier’s upcoming basketball schedule and it has a reference to one of their toughest games: Jan. 3 when they host GU.
