"As with anyone who has the ball in his hands a lot, he needs to know where everyone should be and who needs to get the ball every possession, all of that can be easier said than done, but he does day after day."

Dudley added: "Sani and I have a special relationship which goes way beyond the basketball court. I have been hard on him since we got here two years ago and he has never backed away from my expectations. He has earned all his responsibilities and many times during the game he is calling the offense, not me. His leadership during timeouts with his voice as well as pre-game and post-game is heard and respected by everyone in our program.

"He loves being a Redbirds basketball player, his care factor for our success is extremely high. He is what we want in our players; tough, competitive and willing to work. His future is very bright on and off the court.”

Again, congrats to Elliott on his Auto Butler Male Athlete of the Month honor for the Redbirds.
