Gaucho preview: Lucas Devenny
Lucas Devenny is a 6'9" freshman power forward from Santa Rosa, CA. He averaged 21 points, 16 rebounds, and four blocked shots a game his senior year at Piner High. Named to the Honorable Mention All-State and Second All-Bay Area teams, Devenny led Piner to three consecutive post-season berths, and a North Bay League title last season.
Devenny had career high games of 36 points, 26 rebounds, and 11 blocked shots in high school. Known for being a solid presence in the paint, Devenny can also step out and knock down the outside jumper with accuracy. His length and strength in the post will be valuable for the Gaucho front court, as will his ability to rebound and score from the perimeter and inside.
