Better strength has 6-5 guard ready for big season
It’s 3 p.m., and the Sherman Oaks Notre Dame basketball team is hard at work lifting weights, heaving medicine balls and trying to get stronger.
Despite the pressure to play nonstop, the smart ones are spending time in the weight room building strength so that when they drive down the lane and perhaps get bumped, it won’t bother them.
That’s the case with improving 6-foot-5 senior Julian Rishwain, who recently committed to Boston College. He’s pretty much been the No. 2 option behind talented junior Ziaire Williams, who has grown to nearly 6-10. But Rishwain credits improved strength for helping his development as a player.
