Coach Walker says:
“A tough injury sidelined Ian for the first seven games last season, but we saw flashes of his skills and talents. Ian is a very good back-to-the-basket low post scorer and a good three-point shooter. Added strength and experience will enable Ian to step forward as an outstanding America East competitor.”
