There's bad luck, and then there's Anson Winder's luck last season. He sprained his ankle the day before individual workouts began and thus played very sparingly early on, and eventually even had to see a foot specialist because he wasn't healing. He was told he may need surgery, and though it didn't come to that, he never got into a rhythm. This year, however, should be a different story.

When Anson Winder was notified that members of the media wanted to interview him following Monday's practice, he appeared to be a bit surprised. After all, the redshirt freshman guard has very much been under the radar and was seemingly a forgotten commodity this offseason, with other freshmen receiving more attention and playing a bigger role in the team's exhibition games in Greece.

When it comes to size, Jimmer Fredette and Jackson Emery are on the relatively small side of the spectrum when compared to many basketball players. But, when they leave after this year, they will leave some Shawn Bradley-sized shoes to fill. Arguably one of the nation's best guard tandems and BYU's best ever, their replacements are currently at BYU taking notes and preparing to take over.
