Sterling Gibbs hasn’t been a member of the UConn Huskies men’s basketball program for all that long himself. But since he is in his graduate year and fourth year of playing college basketball, he is being a mentor this season to freshman point guard Jalen Adams.
Amida Brimah is in his third year of being a part of the UConn’s men’s basketball team and this season he is also being a mentor to Norwalk, CT native Steve Enoch.
With Gibbs and Brimah advising the younger Adams and Enoch, they’ll be able to learn how to conduct themselves on and off the court in regards to everything, not just basketball. It’s definitely not an uncommon thing to see and will only benefit the young freshman for years to come.
After Saturday’s exhibition win over the UNH Chargers, head coach Kevin Ollie as well as Adams and Enoch talked about Gibbs and Brimah being mentors.
