Very few people in the Terre Haute area know more about basketball than Setliff. Very, very knowledgeable dude.Had this passed to me today from my buddy Jason Setliff:
"He has relatives that are lifelong Hautians. His great aunt has been a librarian at the ISU library for years, and his late great uncle, Francois Muyumba, was the head of African American Studies."
Very cool. So it looks like he'd have some family here if he decided to come play at State. That said, his dream school is UNC from videos and articles I read.
Makes sense if he was given the info from his family as well as how much Mike was into international basketball.I'm pretty sure the late Mike Saylor brought Dikembe Mutombo to Terre Haute for a recruiting visit back in the day when he was an assistant coach at State. Just another tidbit of info.
