"Rhondi is a big signing for us. He comes from a dominate progam in NCAA Division 2 basketball in Lincoln Memorial. Plus he played for a great coach in Josh Schertz, who has coached many players who have gone on to play at the pro level. I really like his overall skill for an athletic 6-7 player. He can score on the block and from the 3pt. line. He runs the floor very well and is active on the boards. Another great skill of his is his ability to pass the basketball. LMU initiated the offense a lot thru him at the trail spot. He is skilled in a lot of areas. Another great skill of his is his ability to guard the pick and roll (Coach Schertz said one of the best he has had it). He also has great timing and is an excellent shot blocker. His numbers all in all are solid especially considering the type of talented winning team he was on and the minutes he played. He is going to be a solid pro next season. David Gonzalez (President of FA Basketball/FIBA Agent) are really happy with bringing Rhondi into our family of players" Michael Stinnett Free Agency Director of Scouting
