Character

Gonzaga head coach Mark Few commented on Bouldin’s character.  He states: “This is Matt’s team.  He is a leader by example, both on and off the court. He has the respect and trust of the players and the staff.  Matt has worked hard every year to make himself better, both in the off-season and during the season, and the players take notice of the work ethic Matt brings every day.  He’s the consummate guard.”
