I had the honor to know and work with Ian for over 15 years, his passion and vision were second to none. So sorry for his passing and I will miss our monthly conversations. My thoughts and prayers are will the entire Naismith Family. In Ian's memory, I will continue to speak and demonstrate through clinics that we teach the intent of how the game is to be played and strive to keep the game pure
