Style of play

“I like to work my way into the mid-range game.  Coaches start telling me to shoot the three so I start shooting the three so it will open up my mid-range game.”

Court IQ

“I think I see the floor, make passes and know how to draw fouls too.”

Keys to success

“Staying to the grind and just keeping my attitude right and my composure by staying in the gym.”
