SCOUTING REPORT: Zach is a very crafty player and knows how to play the game. He is shooting the ball very well and getting used to the change of pace up and down the court. I knew Zach could shoot, but what has surprised me the most is his ability to make plays. He has been a lot of fun to coach so far.
