I thought he was as good as any player in the league on both ends of the floor last season, said Leicester head coach Rob Paternostro.I think his versatility and ability to impact the game in so many ways is unique and its what separates him from a lot of players.He is able to lead the game and find the best way to impact it on a nightly basis. Sullivan played a key role for the Riders last season His ability gives a coach great luxury - no matter what line-up he has around him.We know that Drew is as competitive as anyone and has a passion for winning. He is someone that is excited about the future of the club moving forward - both on and off the court.Drew is a player that I have great familiarity with after working with him for four seasons and you are always happy when you look out on to the floor and the No 8 is wearing your colours.Sullivan is the second Riders player to re-sign on a multi-year deal for the upcoming season, following on from the announcement that Tyler Bernardini would be continuing with the club next season.

LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St. Trainer Tony Sears decision to avoid top three-year-old Winning Rupert with French Jet has proved a winning one.Sears had accepted with French Jet for a $100,000 three-year-old race at Eagle Farm last Saturday but scratched him to run at Ipswich on Wednesday.French Jet ($3.30) overcame being caught deep early to beat the favourite Love A Rose ($2.70) by 1-1/4 lengths in the Three-Year-Old Hcp (1000m).I didnt want to take on Winning Rupert from the bad barrier on Saturday and I think I was right after that horse ran a course record, Sears said.But I have a good opinion of French Jet and if he continues to improve we will press on to the Magic Millions Guineas (on January 14). If he isnt up to that there are plenty of QTIS bonus races for him.Sears said he expected Wednesdays race would prove a good form guide.I know a couple of the other trainers have opinions of their horses and I have one of mine especially as he matures, Sears said.He said he was sure French Jet would show strong form oncee he got to the 1400m of the Magic Millions Guineas.
