"My goal is to score 100 points every game, I think most players want to have that kind of freedom to create. We want our players to feel comfortable taking shots in transition. I don't want to slow down and set up. We will have fun and play with confidence. We are looking for young men with the ability to do the academic work and comport themselves in a manner that will make their families and school proud of them on and off the court. We will build a program that will compete right away and schedule some D1 schools in the next few years. I'm available to answer your recruiting questions, and YES, we offer Basketball Scholarships!"
