The thoughts of Penn coach Jerome Allen on guard Dau Jok tells you all you need to know about the passionate senior from the Midwest by way of South Sudan.
"He is what college basketball is all about, the ultimate student-athlete experience," Allen said Tuesday. "I thank God that I've had the opportunity to coach him. I think, to be honest with you, I've gained more from the relationship than he has."
Jok is among five Division I players named to the Allstate NABC Good Works Team, an honor recognizing a player for his commitment to community service. The team also honors women's Division I players, and men's and women's players representing combined Division II, Division III and NAIA teams.
