Came across this recent 50min documentary at youtube, focusing basically on 2 japanese players, the first half of the video is on Ryuichi Hachimura, who, if anyone is aware, will be another japanese player who is going to Gonzaga as freshmen at the end of the season, and the second part, which starts from around 27min. in the clip, is on Yuta.  There is no english subtitle but there are some extensive interviews with ML and Pato, TC and Kev (who talks about Yuki Togashi) as well. I thought this video was great publicity for GW.    The most interesting interview was Garino who mentioned that his dream is to play one day against Yuta and Kev in future Olympics each representing their country.

The only part in the video that I kind of felt ashamed were some of the clips of our previous games where they showed how empty the seats were!

Would be a great matchup to Orgainze something at Barclay's between GW and Gonzaga in the next year or two.

Does anyone know Japanese and feel like translating the interviews of Yuta? At 18,124 views, Yuta may be one of the most popular Colonials of all time. I kept looking for the Japanese flag but they never showed it.

Fire up the transfer news

With at least one open scholarship, I think we will be looking for another 5th year player ala Creek.
