    Thorburn had a nice article on Trent Beckley in today's Boulder Daily Camera. Beckley's a 6'10", big body grinder from Vail who is a RS-Junior former walk-on to the program. He sat out last year due to a stress fracture in his spine.

    The following quotes make it pretty clear what Beckley's role is this year:

    "Rebounding was definitely an issue last season and it was hard to be on the bench watching your teammates getting out-rebounded and out-hustled, knowing that's what I bring to this team is the enthusiasm," Beckley said. "I'm not saying they didn't go about it the right way, but that's kind of what I bring is the intensity and energy. Sometimes we lacked that."

    "Trent has great passion, a huge body, he's someone people forget about when they talk about our basketball team," Bzdelik said. "He's a five-foul guy with a wide body who plays with passion and can hold and contain position in the post. And he can rebound.

    "It's just a matter of playing under control. That's his area of need, so to speak."

    "Trent brings a different type of attitude to the big-man core, a will and a want-to," Thorne said. "He`s very big and he plays very fierce. He just needs to calm himself down and go out and do it on the floor."

    I can just picture my old coach saying that about me, and I was a guard!
