Smith on Stockton
"I think Brandon did a good job for us early in the season, especially with Cliff being out. He is going to back up Hawkins this year because Fitch will probably move to the two-guard position. Brandon has a lot of potential. We need his free throw and outside shooting and his ability to run the team."
