Bootleg Video: ASU Post-Game

For once, the buzz around Stanford Basketball is positive on the injury department. Following Thursday night's 82-69 win over Arizona State, we looked to Dan Grunfeld for insight into his 31 points on sterling shooting from the field and the line. He talked about his new knee brace, how it helps and why he felt comfortable making the change. Also, Matt Haryasz gives thanks for eyesight, now returned to normal.

This was not just the "Grunfeld of old" Thursday night.  The Stanford senior had a career game against the Arizona State Sun Devils, dropping 31 points on 9-of-11 shooting from the field (including 2-of-3 from deep) and 11-of-11 from the free throw line.  He moved better, which got him to the basket and enabled him to better separate from defenders.  Even his shooting touch was improved.  Grunfeld is not one to blow one game out of proportion, but he did admit the difference he feels with a new, lighter knee brace to which he just changed.  He is happy, as is the case for teammates and coaches.  Haryasz talked about his friend and classmate's new look, and he also waxed philosophically about the value of something he took for granted: eyesight.
