  • Grabbed a career-high 10 rebounds in the victory over Loyola Maryland and continued to play solid interior defense.
  • Set the tone in the team’s win over Seattle with great post defense against the Red Hawks’ 7-3 center Aaron Menzies along with a put-back dunk in the game’s first few minutes.
