Steve Newman gets his first start of the year.

Steve Newman has moved into the opening line-up for the Utah Flash.

Newman was given the start last night at the center position. He responded with 5 rebounds and 2 blocked shots. Although he did not score any points, the Utah Flash did win the game against the Reno BigHorns, 114 to 108.

Newman is not guaranteed to keep his place in the opening line-up, but if he hustles, rebounds and hits his shots when open, he could develop into a guy like David Lee, formerly of University of Florida, who is playing for the New York Knicks.

David Lee is a top-notch athlete, which he showed as a McDonald's All-American and at Florida. He's not as good as he is just by hustling. There's serious talent there. I love Newman, and he's a Damn Good Dawg, but he doesn't have the potential to be a David Lee-type player.
