Getting to know Ivan...

Why did you choose JMU?

International Business


Which of your teammates would you most want to play in a one-on-one game?
It would be great to play against each of them, because I can learn something from every one.


What did last year’s NCAA tournament run mean to you?
It was great that guys last year accomplished something as huge as making the NCAA tournament. Of course it is huge motivation for all of us to repeat.
