"Armani is a guard with great instincts. With him coming to summer school late, he was a little behind from a conditioning standpoint and knowing our expectations. But once he started getting in the groove, he caught up quickly. And he's another guy who - with help from (strength and conditioning coach Nicodemus Christopher) - did a great job changing his body in the weight room. The summer trip to Italy was really good for Armani; it gave him some confidence. He was a really good passer for us there. He should be able to do many things because he has those natural instincts for the game. He can score and pass at a high level. Now he has to keep working on his handle and get that tighter to make sure he cuts down on turnovers."
