To 'his guys,' Rob Yanders was supposed to be immortal. They'll make sure his memory is.

Upon landing in Springfield to spend a little more time at home before school and his preseason basketball schedule began, Zach Howell talked to Rob Yanders on the phone asking when he could get in the gym.

The two talked, as they did frequently, about the plan for while Howell was home. Preseason was intense at Milwaukee and the sophomore guard and former Catholic High star wanted to make sure he was in the best shape possible for when he put his Panthers uniform back on.

The two settled on Howell waking up early to head over to Yanders' The Basketball Movement gym the next morning.
