ROSSI ON ORTIZ: "Andres in his first year out of Junior College jumped out the gate quickly than struggled a bit offensively as the year wore on. He worked hard to get back to where he wanted to be and in the conference tournament he helped carry the team to the conference championship game, and was named to the All-Tournament team. He is expected to be a major offensive threat in his final season."
