Gaucho preview: Jon Pastorek
Jon Pastorek, a 6'10" junior forward, redshirted last season after transferring in from San Diego State. Pastorek averaged 1.9 points and 1.2 rebounds per game his sophomore season, shooting 50% from the field. He had a career-high 13 points in a game his freshman season as an Aztec.
With Jesse Byrd out for the season due to a knee injury, Pastorek will compete for one of the starting forward positions. Pastorek can step outside and hit the perimeter jumper, and is equally adept at setting up his teammates. His length and versatility will be a welcome addition to the Gaucho front court.
