Q: What are your thoughts on the 2010-11 basketball team? Alex Wolf is the only player left on the roster that you ever played with.

A: They are going to have a great season. The loss of Dave (Kool) is going to big, but the other guys are going to continue to grow and get better. Flen (Whitfield) really came on at the end of last season. I talk to Alex a lot and we've had numerous conversations about leadership. He is one of the hardest working guys that I have ever met. He deserves everything he's got since coming in as a walk-on and working his butt off to earn playing time. With those guys leading the team and all the other young guys coming up, I think it is going to be an exciting year for Western Michigan.


August 2010 article in Gazette about Alex being the lone senior.

Thursday, March 18, 2010: Wolf is the ultimate compliment to Douglas. He's a terrific outside shooter -- forcing defenses to change how they guard the position -- and a confident player the second he comes off the bench. That's tough to do. David Brown and Demetrius Ward are rarely as good in their first minute as they are in their fifth. Wolf doesn't seem to need the warmup. It's one reason he's best suited as a reserve. Another is that, when scouted extensively, teams tend to pressure and trap him and, as Hawkins said, occasionally he doesn't handle the ball well. Still, he's come a long way in this regard as a Division I point guard. Two years ago, the ability to dribble against pressure was the difference between Wolf and Mike Redell. Now, Hawkins has no problem turning to Wolf, at either guard position, for extended minutes. He's no longer just a good story. He's a good player.
