 Senior Nate Mensah Comes Far in Four Years

As many seniors at Santa Clara University can attest to, it's amazing how far a person can come in his or her four years on the Mission Campus. Just ask men's basketball senior Nate Mensah who walked onto the team as a freshman in 2007. Over the past four years at SCU, Mensah has grown and developed with the program, seeing the team, coaching staff, and himself take great strides.
 
“Things were so different freshman year,” said Mensah. “Everyone was new – the coaches, the players. It took a lot of getting used to, and we weren't really sure how to do things, what was expected of us. Now that the majority of the team has been together for two or three years we all know one another and know what the coaches want from us. We've formed relationships – the players and the coaches – that have helped all of us improve."
 
Aside from the development of the program in his time at Santa Clara, Mensah has also seen his role on the team change tremendously in four years. Read more.
