DJ: My goal this year is to be the WCC Defensive Player of the Year, and also for the team to win the conference tournament.
SCB: Has being an EyeBronco reporter contributed to your Santa Clara career? How?

SCB: How have you changed as a player in the past three years?
DJ: My basketball IQ has grown which allows me to slow the game down and see things developing before they happen.
SCB: How have you changed as a person in the past three years?
DJ: I have grown up so much in the past three years being on my own and having to take care of business by myself.
