The "Jewish Dwight Howard"

Northwestern’s newest big man is a hard-working, yarmulke-wearing potential steal

Aaron Liberman attended an 86-student Jewish high school near Los Angeles with no basketball gym on campus. He passed up interest from USC, Boston College and several mid-majors to be part of the Northwestern program. And his highlight videos feature so many dunks and blocked shots against small-school opposition that one website christened him the "Jewish Dwight Howard."

It will be interesting to see how this plays out especially with Shabbos and wearing his yarmulke during games. I hope he succeeds.
