WHAT AAU PROGRAM DIRECTOR JIM HART THINKS OF CHRIS PELCHER: "He loves to be coached. He loves to ask questions. He just loves to play the game. It's refreshing to be around him because he has so much energy in playing the game."
COLLEGE DECISION: Chris chose Iona after also having some recruiting interest from Fordham, Massachusetts, St. Francis, and Siena, according to Hart.
"He'll have a chance to play and earn minutes at Iona," said Hart. "It's a good level for him. He's developing and still getting better in improving his individual game. So it'll be interesting to see what his game will be like by the time he is a junior."
