Emily Tay, Guard Extraordinaire

Emily Tay is visiting Gonzaga University during the Grand Opening of the McCarthey Athletic Center and Coach Kelly Graves would like nothing more than to have this exciting and multi-talented guard give a commitment to top off a stellar recruiting 2005 class.

Emily Tay: Player of the Year. That just about sums up Emily. #42. You want 25 points a game? You want 10 assists? Need some big numbers in the rebounds, steals and hustle departments? Need a defensive stop?

Look no further than Marlborough School in Los Angeles and their 5'8" star point guard. Tay is the calibre of player that warrants the term "difference maker" and a commitment to Gonzaga would ensure that the Zags stay on top AND seriously upgrade at the point guard position.

The Book on Emily reads like this:

Extremely smart, great handles, great in the open court, nice passer, nice pull up jumpers, shoots the 3, a good scorer.

One of the top players in the west, regardless of position, it goes without saying the daughter of Leonard and Betty Tay would be a huge coup for the Gonzaga program.

And that's just what Gonzaga Head Coach Kelly Graves and staff is hoping for when Emily visits October 23-25. With two high-caliber post players and an outstanding wing already committed to the Zags, a quality point guard is needed to round out the recruiting class and help replace departing senior Shannon Mathews.

Emily Tay fits that description to a "T."

Also visiting at the same time as Emily will be 6'2" Maria Hassett from Beaverton, Oregon. Maria was the first 2005 recruit to commit to the Zags.
