IN HIS OWN WORDS...

Why IWU...

I came to IWU because of the amazing atmosphere and people here. Even before joining the basketball team, I knew this campus was special and would be a place where I could grow in my faith and surround myself with others that are trying to be more like Christ. 

IAm3 is...

IAm3 is a culture that puts God first, others second, and yourself third. Today, society deceivingly tells us that getting to the top means putting yourself first. However, Scripture tells us that Jesus, the Son of Man, put others before himself and came not to be served but to serve, as he gave his life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45). By implementing IAm3 in our program, we are able to play more freely by putting our trust in God and looking for ways to make our teammates better, which ultimately makes ourselves better.

Fearless is...

The fearless mentality is one that sets you apart from those that are fearful of what is to come. By having a fearless mindset in everything you do, you can whole-heartedly attack every challenge that comes your way without the constant worry of failure holding you back.

The IWU coaching staff is...

Our coaching staff is always looking for opportunities that will help us grow not only on the court, but in our faith and academics as well. They truly care about each and every one of us and it shows in their intentionality. They’re just awesome.
