Box And One With Will Conroy

SEATTLE (BASN) — One of the most exciting and complete basketball players in the NBA Development League that you may not know is Will Conroy.

He currently plays for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers and one of the most productive Point Guards in the league. Will has recorded four triple doubles this season and at this time he’s averaging 15.6 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 10.3 apg for the Vipers.

“I was very excited about the first time that I did it and it came within the flow of the game.

I really enjoy rebounding and have had great success doing it which is unusual for a point guard,” stated Will.

The Houston Rockets have called Will up twice this season and he should be getting another invitation before the season end but it’s my opinion that there are a few teams in the NBA that can benefit from his services.

For most people there would be a level of frustration that has set in by this point but that’s not the case for Will Conroy.

“I’m very fortunate to be able to play professional basketball and everyday I step on the court and give 110%,” Will commented.

Will just takes it all in stride and the intensity of his game never changes.

It could be the NBA, Parks and Recreation Department or your backyard, Will plays to win.

He focuses on the moment and plays hard at all times.

“If you are putting in the work and doing your best regardless of your professional occupation, good things will happen for you.

At this time I’m focused on bringing a Championship to Rio Grande Valley Vipers,” Conroy added.

The Rio Grande Valley Vipers have a five game lead and are the Western Conference leaders at 30-12.

The Vipers are packing their bags tomorrow for a road trip to face conference rivals, the Reno Bighorns (20-21) on Friday.

Whenever these two teams face each other it’s a competitive game.

Will has just one other item on his mind right now and that’s cheering on his alma matter, University of Washington as the face Marquette on Thursday in San Jose.

“I feel that we can match up with them perfectly. ” We play defense, press the ball, create open looks, and can run the floor.

Coach Romar will have those guys ready to play,” he continued.

No, Will didn’t fill out a bracket.

He’s got the Washington Huskies winning it all this year and didn’t feel the need to waste any ink or paper.

If Will was still playing for the Huskies I would be more inclined to agree with him.
