He can impact the game in so many ways even when tasked with guarding the other team's top player. Great at guarding the ball, and great at help side defense, Sam is a defensive wizard and has the capabilities to control the game with his defensive.  Sam's impact on this year's Huskies basketball team is nothing short of sensational".
