Quentin Matsui Pronunciation

TIFFANY ON MATSUI
2021 – “Molding and evolving into a dominant close defenseman … five months last year combined with this past fall semester have seen him emerge … combination of his own unique cover techniques and new tricks.” 2020 – “How quickly would the first-year defender from Minnesota adapt to the speed of collegiate attackmen and the necessary communication for accurate decision-making? Quentin showed us that given a month, he would prove himself to be up for the one-on-one challenges.  He has also become more vocal, demonstrating a growing comfort with the defensive schemes and terminology, which is preparing him to be a contributor right away.”
