- Darris Santee set for home finale following two years of all-around growth at UNLV (03-05-10)
- Darris Santee runs silent, runs deep (10-26-09)
- UNLV seniors Santee, Jones cherish last home game (03-06-10)
Greene's Take: Santee started his first season at UNLV strong but faded away as it progressed, and now needs to not only re-discover his aggression from early last year, but make it last throughout his senior campaign. Santee doesn't have great offensive range, but he has a wide array of moves with the ball in the paint and is arguably the Rebels' most athletic big man. He's going to have to provide senior leadership by example, as he's not a very outspoken person by nature.

JUNIOR COLLEGE: A 2008 graduate of Midland (Texas) College ... team won the 2007 NJCAA national championship with a record of 29-8 ... averaged 8.5 points and 4.0 rebounds per game his freshman season ... as a sophomore in 2007-08, he averaged 14.0 points per game and his team won the conference championship ... was named the team's offensive player of the year and first team all-conference ... coached by Grant McCasland ... was a top-40 prospect by JucoJunction and Rivals.
