So as the basketball is in Spain, I figured I'd talk about just how recognizable the MBB program is around the world. I've done some research vigorously with these stats over the years for the basketball program to see just how storied and prestigious we've become in that sport

Zavier looks like he is total control.  

Iggy is going to be a major player this year. 

Charles and Jordan are playing with attitude and toughness. 

Teske is doing a Bill Laimbeer imitation from three.

Nunez has a sweet three point stroke.  

The team was absolutely getting after it with each other.
