Getting To Know The Juniors
Feb. 11, 2009
STANFORD, Calif.- One has cracked the starting lineup and asserted himself as the club's top rebounding threat. The other represents one of the Cardinal's top reserves, averaging almost 13 minutes of playing time off the bench. Together, both players have contributed steadily throughout the year as the Cardinal currently sports a 15-7 overall mark.
Recently, www.gostanford.com had a chance to catch up with the two juniors.
(2) Landry Fields
Guard/Forward - 6-7 - 210
Long Beach, CA (Los Alamitos HS)
After coming off the bench in his first 63 games, Fields has started all 22 contests this year and is averaging 30.0 minutes. The club's best rebounder at 6.8 boards per game, Fields has quickly earned the reputation of a true 'stat-stuffer' as he is also averaging 11.9 points and 1.7 assists per game. Fields has made 51.1 percent from the field, 36.7 percent from beyond the arc and he ranks second on the club with 28 steals. Fields has scored in double-figures 13 times, recorded three double-doubles and established career-high totals in almost every offensive category.
(10) Drew Shiller
Guard - 6-0 - 170
Burlingame, CA (San Francisco)
Now in his second full season at Stanford after transferring over from San Francisco, Shiller has appeared in 16 contests off the bench.

One of the team's top threats from beyond the arc, Shiller has connected on 10-29 attempts from long range.
