Coach Walker on Pitts:
Chris is another one
of those every day guys. He’s always ready to go to work, be it the
weight room, practice, or a game. Chris is amazing in that he rarely
has a bad practice. He has sharpened up his outside shooting touch, and
is becoming a better college post player all the time. What Chris does
very well is rebound and defend. He is one of the top defending big men
in the conference, in my opinion, because he can guard multiple spots on
the floor. Plus, he rebounds the ball well, always getting a hand on or
near the ball. We will need big leadership out of Chris this year.”
