Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

Good standing academics because of school standards. Recruit high D2 to low D1 primarily. Shooting isn’t requirement but head coach definitely prefers strong shooting ability. Well coached and prefer guys on teams that win. Need to have strong defensive minded background.
