In today’s Courier-Journal basketball notebook, Eloy Vargas says he is ready for a bigger role next season. Bolstered by confidence from good play in China, where he averaged 10.6 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1.9 blocks in nine exhibition games, Eloy is ready to contribute:
“I had more confidence at the end of the season. I’m kind of used to it now. Over there I did pretty good. … I’m trying to be like that, but Josh is a different guy than me. I’m going to be myself. I want to show energy, rebounding and blocking shots.”
“We expect a lot from him,” teammate Darius Miller said. “He’s been working really hard. He’s definitely improved. He’s playing more aggressive and tougher.”
If you remember, Josh Harrellson also went to China last summer and look how that worked out. Now, we just need to figure out what size jorts centaurs wear.
