I learned a whole lot. I haven't gotten down the stare yet, but I've learned that there's a way that you play this game. And obviously from a coaching standpoint I mean you want to play this game and coach it with great integrity. We want to make sure we are here for these student athletes as the student first and then the athlete. All the lessons I've learned from coach Summit have centered around her being influential in the sense of being a great role model -- grooming us to treat people the way we want to be treated. Having less quit in ourselves. And "having less quit" means you touch every line -- you don't cut corners. And those are life lessons you have to have in her program and to succeed is built on passion -- obviously a love for the game. And the hard work. So I've definitely taken those two things. And obviously being at UCLA with John Wooden and they're very, very similar. A lot of similarities in what they believe in and how they have affected the game of basketball.
