“Including Derek we’ve got guys in the starting five that are ready to play anytime,” said Anderson, a graduate transfer. “From what I’ve been able see, very happy with the progress we’ve made over the year. Obviously we have things to get better at and we’re never gonna be content with where we’re at.”
