Currier on Humphrey - “Josh is on the doorstep of being one of the best shooters in the conference, and we are counting on him to take the lead as our only senior on a young team. Josh has always been a good rebounding guard, and will need to be great this season for us to take the next step. Josh has improved his defense, and become more engaged into the details of our defensive system. I look for Josh to have a breakout season for us in 2012-13.”
