ANY OTHER SPORTS YOU FOLLOW OR EVEN PLAY
I’m a big Chicago sports fan so I enjoy watching the Bulls, Bears, Cubs and Blackhawks.

BIGGEST INFLUENCE ON YOUR BASKETBALL CAREER
Coach Brey from Notre Dame. He has taught me a great deal about the game as well as help me develop into the player I am today.

BEST BASKETBALL ATTRIBUTE/ASSET
I would say my versatility. It allows me to play inside or out and take advantage of certain match-ups or mismatches.

MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN YOUR LIFE
My entire family, they have helped me so much over the course of my life and I’m very thankful to have a family as supportive as they are.

FAVOURITE HOLIDAY DESTINATION
Can’t say I really have one, however I enjoy hanging out at the beach when I get the opportunity.

BEST THING ABOUT COLLEGE LIFE OTHER THAN BASKETBALL
Just being around friends all the time. I made some great friendships while in school and it was truly great to spend those years with my friends.

BEST MOMENT IN BASKETBALL SO FAR
I would have to say when we (Notre Dame) beat Syracuse the year before last. They were ranked number 1 in the country and were undefeated. We were struggling a bit going into that game, but that night everything clicked and we were able to win a tough game in front of our home fans.

WORST MOMENT IN BASKETBALL SO FAR
Honestly ever year that the season ends with a loss is the worst. Its a terrible feeling that stays with you until the next season finally rolls around.

MOST DEMANDING COACH
Again I would have to go with Coach Brey at Notre Dame. He expected us to take accountability for ourselves and take ownership in our own development as player.

ONE PERSON IN THE WORLD YOU’D LOVE TO MEET AND WHY
I would have to go with Michael Jordan. Growing up a Bulls fan obviously he was every kid’s idol and was one of the largest influences in my falling in love with the game of basketball.
