Grizzlies get another for 2010-11

Oakland has received a commitment from Dayton Dunbar (OH) senior point guard Ryan Bass for the 2010-11 season.
The 5-foot-9 Bass has been splitting time at the point this season and is averaging 12 points and 3 assists per game, according to his coach, Peter Pullen.
"He's a point guard that can score. He doesn't need to score to have a big game. He had a big game the other night and he only scored seven points, but they came at the time and moment (needed), and that's what a good point guard does,” Pullen said.
Pullen said Bass, a transfer from Chaminade Julliene in Dayton, Ohio, where he played his first three seasons of high school basketball, made his decision after a recent visit to Cleveland State. Aside from the Vikings, Pullen said Bass was shown interest by other suitors such as: Duquesne, Texas A&M, Toledo and Bowling Green.
"Oakland was just on him from the start. They were very interested in him,” Pullen said.
"They did a great job of supporting him and just staying with him. He's just comfortable with the coaching staff and he enjoyed his visit when he went up.”
Pullen said Dunbar has been ranked No. 1 in the state of Ohio all season and is currently 15-1.
