KELLOGG ON GLASS: "Matt Glass is the type of kid you want to build your program around. An unbelievable kid both on and off the court. He brings it every day and gives you great effort and great attitude. He's a very, very good three point shooter and we're going to look for him to be a little more aggressive on the offensive end, to be an unbelievable defender and to really hit the boards. He has the value into what were trying to do in that, he can make open shots."
