College Preview – Vaughn Autry

Ok in the first part of this two-part post I addressed how I look at true freshman when doing a preseason preview of college team. In the second part of this I want to look more closely at the freshman the Griz fans think I am short-changing – Vaughn Autry.

When I thought about doing this post, I decided I needed to really take a fresh look at Autry, so I contacted a handful of people. These are all folks who evaluate talent for a living, and one of them has seen Autry play over 25 times in the past 12-18 months I gave them a rundown of my initial logic in coming up with my Griz Preview to get their opinions. I also read all of the Egriz comments. Unfortunately I have only seen Autry once for about 15-20 minutes in an open gym situation, so I really do not feel that is enough to develop an independent opinion.

My Initial thoughts
When I wrote my previews of the Montana state and Montana previews the one area I struggled with was evaluating the Montana back court positions. I really scratched my head trying to get a handle how it will shake out and what was/is Tinkle and his coaches planning based on their recruiting choices. Here are my thoughts.

Griz Sign Idris Lasisi


I have heard that Wayne Tinkle and his Montana coaching staff has finished up it’s 2010 recruiting with the signing of Idris Lasisi of Sheridan junior college in Wyoming. Lasisi is a 6-2 195 pound shooting guard who hails from Sint-Pieterscollege high school in Leuven, Belgium. Lassis just finished up his freshman year at Sheridan and is a late D-1 qualifier,, and will have three years of eligibility at Montana.

For Sint-Pieterscollege high school in 2008-09 Lasisi averaged 15 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals a game. Last season for Sheridan Lasisi averaged 10 points, 3 rebounds, and 2 assist while shooting 48% from the field, 43% from the three point range and 71% from the free throw line. Lasisi has also established himself as a defensive stopper and was named Region IX all defensive first team. He was also named to the Region IX all tourney team as Sheridan made it to the Region IX championship game.

Lasisi answers one question I have had about the current crop of Griz recruits three point shooting. The Griz lost it’s three best 3-point shooting players to graduation or transfer from last years team, The recruits signed earlier are not strong three point shooters, but Lasisi should help right away as a dead eye three point shooter. Lasisi also brings decent athleticism and a strong defensive presence to the Griz line up.
