Greene's Take: Following a tumultuous offseason, Willis is itching to be back on the floor after serving a brief suspension to start his senior season. He provides stability to the offense when on the floor and also has a reputation for being the Rebels' go-to guy in the clutch. This season, he may flourish even more now that more offensive support appears to be entrenched around him. Willis is also a dogged defender, and is one of the few players in the Mountain West who has a track record for successfully slowing BYU star Jimmer Fredette.
