Hitting a clutch 3 pointer vs Olivet my freshman year while my high school coach was in attendance. 

What is your most memorable academic experience at K?

The seats aren't made for 5,6,7 hour bus rides...

Negotiation and Persuasion with Dr. Hultberg because it is a class that translates directly to the business world.

Outside of sports, what is your favorite hobby?
Researching different invesetment strategies and making stock trades.

Taco Tuesday, no doubt.

Who is your role model?
My dad and grandfather. They have shown me how to succeed on and off the court while always putting family first.

What do you enjoy most about practice?
The feeling of gratification after a good practice.

What do you like least about practice?
Long hours of film.
