Suns Draft Candidate: Terrence Ross
Terrence Ross, the 6-foot-7 shooting guard from the University of Washington, enjoyed a stellar sophomore season that saw him improve in every statistical category, including his scoring average, which jumped from 8.0 points per game as a freshman to 16.4 points in his second year.
Ross ranked fourth in the Pac-12 in scoring and sixth in three-pointers made (72). The Portland, Oregon product garnered first team All-Pac-12 honors as a sophomore. He was also one of only two Pac-12 players to rank in the top ten in points and rebounds in the 2011-12 season.
Ross helped lead the Huskies to the semifinals of the NIT, where they lost 68-67 in overtime to Minnesota. In the four games of the NIT, Ross averaged 25 points per game and exploded for a career-high 32 in a second round win over Northwestern.
