    Personal:

  • Born March 18, 1995 ... Son of Diane and Rick Avare ... Has one brother, Ryan ... Major is economics with a minor in finance.
  • Personal goal at UofL is to "get bigger and stronger, and to develop more as a person and basketball player."
  • Best moment of his athletic career to date was hitting a buzzer shot to beat a rival in the district championship.
  • Enjoys spending time with friends, his girlfriend and playing ping pong in his spare time.
  • Chose to attend UofL because "UofL is the best team in the country with the best coach, and I know that I will be challenged to get better every day."
  • Best basketball advice given to him was "always go 110% and never give up."
  • Most proud of "my failth, family and friends."
  • His dad has had the greatest influence on his athletic career.
