UA Freshman Markkanen Adjusting Well to New System, New Teammates

The Arizona Wildcats has yet another fantastic incoming freshman class and the one that may make the biggest impact off the bat is 7-0 forward Lauri Markkanen from Finland. He has been projected to start at the power forward in the front court along side Dusan Ristic and with his ability to stretch the floor with his outside shooting, he should pose quite the matchup issue for opposing teams.

I sat down with Markkanen to discuss life so far in America, his fantastic summer suiting up for the Finland national team and where he looks to most improve as the season unfolds.
