On Evans: A strong, skilled combo forward who can face up or post up on the offensive end ... a physical rebounder and a tough, versatile defender ... possesses the ability to guard athletes of different sizes and positions ... owns solid guard skills for a big man ... an adept ball-handler and passer for an athlete of his size ... has amassed 31 games of double-figure scoring and 10 career double-doubles headed into his final season.
Steve Lavin On Evans: "Sean is a bone-crusher. He is an athlete that runs north and south very well for the 94 feet. He will help us a great deal, especially around the rim with his ability to rebound. Sean is going to step up and say, `I want to defend the best big that's an offensive threat on the opposing team.' We have challenged him to accept that role, and I think he has so far."
