This last week I had a chance to sit down with the point guard of Utah State University Eastern, who is one of the many international students on our men’s basketball team this year. He has battled through injuries and hopes to be stronger then ever for the Region tournament. I was able to ask him various questions and to have wonderful conversation with him. In this news article I want to switch it up by having a question and answer segment with Milan Surlic to help us get a better understanding of where this young man from Nis Serbia comes from and his rich culture and family values.

While thankful for the awards, he says the greatest honor was to be listed among the “starting 11 of the team.”

I was watching the all-star game as rumors started to leak out that the Kings were once again interested in trading Demarcus “Boogie” Cousins. I basically rolled my eyes and laughed because they’ve been doing this exact same dance for years upon years and nothing has ever happened. Cousins has always remained a King and the Kings have always remained bad. The game ended and I was on Twitter because I wanted to see the trade go down, then it finally happened.

He’s an Army man, family man and Super Man. Standing just under six-and-a-half feet and weighing in at 230 pounds, there’s no question that Garth Johnson is one of the biggest men in the gym.

Matt Ryan connected with Tevin Coleman for a six-yard touchdown to extend the Falcons’ lead to 25 points with 8:31 to go in the third quarter of Super Bowl 51. It felt like a dagger. I think someone I was watching the game with said after that play, “ballgame.” It felt like it was over and the Falcons were well on their way to winning their first Super Bowl in franchise history and the first sports title for the city of Atlanta since 1995.
