"Their team went out in the first round," Kyle Faber, Krys' father said. "Ribet is not a basketball powerhouse. It's all good; he had a good season."
Minnesota and Northern Illinois had him on campus in the fall. The Gophers made an impression. "He kind of fell in love with the place," Faber said. "He loves the Barn of all places. He likes that old school stuff."
Northern Illinois is a player because assistant Dennis Gates recruited Faber while he was at Cal. There's a definite allegiance to the relationship.
"I really believe he'll visit Notre Dame, St. John's and beyond that its something the coach is working out with the schools themselves."
The Fabers have certainly entertained a host of newcomers throughout the season and interest came from both coasts. Through the hoopla, the family has been extremely loyal to the programs that first reached out.
"We're more concerned with the schools that have shown him love from day one."
