About this Episode

On Episode 106, Sam and Jack are joined by a familiar face from Big Ten basketball in former Minnesota Gopher now current Windy City Bulls forward Daniel Oturu. We talk about his decision to stay home and attend Minnesota, what led to that decision and why Big Ten basketball was the best place for his development. We talk about playing for Richard Pitino, playing against Luka Garza and his eventual drafting into the NBA. Talk through being traded 50 times on draft night, what he did first after being drafted, playing GLeague ball with Hawkeye alum Tyler Cook and how his confidence has grown since joining the professional basketball scene.
