2016-17 OUTLOOK:

“The ultimate ‘feel for the game’ guard. Steve knows how to play and has taken and made big shots for us. As a quieter guy, I have liked how he has become more vocal this summer. He knows it is his turn to lead. We need to have our bigs screen for him more and get him open shots on curling and driving action. He is an unbelievably reliable defender. You can put him on anyone - and we have. All I know is, when Steve is on the court I am a calmer coach. He makes the other four guys better on both ends of the floor.”
- Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey
