    On Roberts: A combination guard with outstanding scoring, ballhandling and playmaking abilities ... a natural shooting guard who can also play at the point, proven during his freshman season ... a versatile athlete with outstanding size and strength ... a battle-tested leader and winner that was also the quarterback of his high school football team.

    Steve Lavin On Roberts: "Defensively, Quincy will take out the opponent's toughest perimeter threat. He is clearly a superior athlete and he can get to the rim, but the best thing he does is finish in transition. We need to channel his fire and competitive nature to elevate our team's play."
