After struggling in team camps this summer, Gibbs has turned things around to start this year, and is on a roll after a 5-0 start, a big reason for this is sophomore David Pierce.

Pierce, who is averaging 17.6 points to start the year, is making a significant impact in replacing Barry Brown.

A big area that Pierce has made an impact, is on the defensive side of the ball, where he is averaging 2.3 steals per game. He's a long, strong guard who can run the point, and also play off ball. He elevates well on his jumpshot, but we think that repetitions are the main things that will get the consistency to a point that will make him a scarier player on the perimeter. 

Pierce has a stretch coming up in December where he will have to deal with some top guards, including Auburndale's Keon Clergeot on the 19th.
