The star of Day One: Houston's Rob Gray, the bad man with the man-bun

(Patrick) #1

Fantastic article. Talks about how CKS had to persuade Gray to stay instead of grad transferring:

Gray was finished talking about his shot, and it was time to place Houston onto the next line of the cardboard bracket.

All eyes were on him again, but he refused, calling over former walk-on and senior Wes Vanbeck, who has been with Sampson from the start. “Wes is sticking this sticker on here!” Gray demanded. “He’s been here four years. I’ve only been here three.”

Finally, Vanbeck gave in.

The baddest man in the NCAA Tournament gets what he wants.
