Zona Roster Breakdown: Small Forwards

Small Forwards:

Chase Budinger: Budinger is a pure shooter and is clearly NBA bound. Budinger has the capability to put the ball on the floor to create his own shot, but is better when his feet are set. Budinger does all the little things you'd expect out of your best and most versatile player. His volleyball background gives him amazing jumping ability and can get right back up quickly. In addition to his shooting ability, Budinger is a very smart player, a great rebounder, solid defender, a good passer, and gets the occassional block or two. If you need someone to take over the game look to him and Jerryd Bayless.

Zane Johnson: Because he was redshirting this year until the ASU game I haven't gotten to see this kid play much, but he's supposedly a great spot-shooter with the sweetest stroke on the team.

Jamelle Horne: Horne typically plays PF when he enters the game, but his size and style make him more of a SF. He's got good speed, height, but not much bulk to him, and can shoot pretty well. He does a good job down low when posting up, but just isn't big enough to defend the larger players in the league. With somre more development he'll prove to be a good backup to Budinger this year.
