2019 Pac-12 Men's Basketball Tournament: Mike Hopkins says Matisse Thybulle is 'like having Deion Sanders'
Mar 15, 2019
Washington men's basketball head coach Mike Hopkins took time after the Huskies' Pac-12 Tournament win over Colorado to praise star defender Matisse Thybulle. "National Defensive Player of the year!" Hopkins said while raising Thybulle's arm, "It should be a done deal. I can hardly believe there's even going to be a vote". Thybulle tied former Oregon State and NBA great Gary Payton for the career Pac-12 steals record Friday night as the Huskies moved on to the tournament title game tomorrow in Las Vegas.
