Zareh Zargaryan has been here before.
He's been asked to score, lead, and create shots for his teammates.
The last time Zargaryan was expected to carry such a load was when he was playing for the Hoover High boys' basketball team.
Now he's being asked to do the same for Cal State Dominguez Hills.
"When he was [at Hoover], we needed him to do a little bit of everything," said former Tornado head coach and current Glendale Community College assistant coach Vigen Jilizian, who mentored the 6-foot-6 forward throughout high school and during Zargaryan's first season with the Vaqueros.
At Dominguez Hills, Zargaryan has needed to be a scorer and a playmaker.
"He's one of our best scorers and best passers," Toros Coach Damaine Powell said. "He's almost like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. He has to score, pass and create shots for his teammates. Right now, he's one of the top three players in the conference.
