A: It’s awesome. They all have so much knowledge about basketball, and they’re amazing to work with and learn from.
Q: Who was the key factor in the recruitment process that led you to Iowa?
A: I was actually going to come to school here no matter what because I’m from Iowa. My brother was a manager at the time, and with the help of the coaches I was invited to a practice.
