Blaine Taylor on Nick Wright: "Nick is a bundle of energy that we have needed to bottle. Taking his personality and his passion, and allowing that to fuel his play in a positive way, has been a fond and interesting process. He brings a great energy to the defensive end and an activity to the boards. His ability to get from place-to-place on the court is very good, yet as we develop his skill and sharpen his senses , it is exciting to know that he's ready now and has laid the groundwork for his future."
