Stepp, Violette Have Solid Outings
July 10, 2004
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Former Gonzaga University standouts Blake Stepp and Cory Violette each had solid outings Friday as the Minnesota Timberwolves picked up their first Minnesota Summer League victory with a 77-64 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
Stepp went 4-for-6 from the field, including 4-for-4 from 3-point range, scored 12 points and dished out 6 assists in 16 minutes off the bench. Violette played 14 minutes, went 4-for-8 from the field for 8 points, grabbed a rebound and had a pair of assists.
Stepp's performance was the best of the week-long summer league for the second-round and only draft selection of Minnesota in the recent NBA Draft. He started Thursday's 82-72 overtime loss to Detroit and went 0-for-4 from the field, including 0-for-2 from 3-point range, and had 5 turnovers in 19 minutes. Violette had played 17 minutes Thursday, going 2-for-5 from the field, 2-for-2 from the free throw line while scoring 6 points and grabbing a rebound.
The Timberwolves (1-3) conclude their Minnesota Summer League schedule Saturday.
Violette, trying to make the team as a free agent, will also play for the Atlanta Hawks in the Rocky Mountain Revue Summer League later this month.
