Larry Sanders Interview

Wed, 07/15/2009 - 8:54am
Akron, Ohio - Following the second college workout at day 2 of the LeBron James Skills Academy, we had a chance to sit down with VCU PF/C, Larry Sanders. After a short and unheralded high school career, Sanders has quickly gained recognition in college for his rebounding and shot-blocking ability. At 217 lbs, he's still filling out his 6'10" frame, but his 7'6" wingspan makes him a presence in the lane. Sanders looked impressive through the first two instructional sessions, showing good hands and quick feet for a post player.
