CORMIER ON BOEHM
“Connor is a very physical player with soft hands. He is a good shooter and
can stretch the defense — he will have the green light from three-point
range — and is also a good post-up player and passes very well from the
post. We will play through him on offense quite often. He comes from a winning program and
brings that winning attitude with him.”
