He has already had multiple 30 point games this season and is looking to add to the stats this week in the Tarkanian Classic in Las Vegas. Ethan is an exceptionally well rounded athlete who boasts a 4.0 GPA while taking a demanding course load throughout the year and completing daily weight room workouts and shoot-arounds on top of practices.
