Connecticut Post Profile: Wesley Matthews

The Connecticut Post penned a nice profile of Wesley Matthews in the New Year's Day edition. The article draws some comparisons between Wesley and his father, a native of Bridgeport, CT. The feature does not discuss his recent injury. Enjoy the article, it's a good one about a good kid.

"Marquette was the place for me. The atmosphere, the coaching staff,
everything," Matthews said. "I'm not a selfish person but when it comes down to college, you have to look out for yourself. And Marquette was perfect for me academically and athletically."

It appears to have been a good choice. Matthews has started all 13 of the Golden Eagles' games and is averaging 9.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.9 steals.

"He's been a very consistent person and player for us," Crean said. "He's done a great job in school, a great job on this campus and he gets better every day as a player. That's what's really exciting."
