Here's a stat that bodes well for House: Only two players in Pac-10 history scored more than 2,000 points and made more than 250 steals. The first was Gary Payton, who hasn't fared too badly in the NBA. House was the second, which suggests that he's more of a scorer than a point guard. He dropped 61 points on California this year and became the first player in league history to score 40 or more points four times in a season. He had eight games of 30 points or more. House, who averaged 23 points, is a tough competitor who can also do other things. He dished out 111 assists, with a season-high 12 against Delaware. He's also a great rebounder for his size, as his 5.5 average and season-high 11 boards against Washington State would attest. He topped off his year by leading the Sun Devils to the second round of the NIT, then finishing runner-up (to Gonzagašs Richie Frahm) in the NABC's 3-point shooting contest at the Final Four. He'll need to show he can be more of a playmaker in the NBA, but he can always forge a career as an updated version of "The Microwave," Vinnie Johnson. House helped his cause by finishing fifth in assists at the NBA's Phoenix tryout camp.
