Gophers basketball recruit Isaac Asuma says his AAU team is among nation's best"This year our coaches have been stressing a lot to score the ball," Asuma said. "I'm trying to get better at that and see more opportunities for myself. Instead of just dishing to my teammates. I'm still growing and getting better at it, but it's been a good process."
The Gophers added transfers Mike Mitchell (Pepperdine) and Elijah Hawkins (Howard) this spring. Both Mitchell and Hawkins have two years of eligibility remaining. Asuma could benefit by learning from veteran point guards the minute he arrives as a freshman in 2024-25, but he'll also be competing for a chance to make an impact.
"It'll be a battle every single day," Asuma said. "They're your teammate but in the summer when you get there, everybody's competing for a spot. You can't let your foot off the gas. You have to bring it."
