Maulik Roots is from a small town Kankakee outside of Chicago, Illinois. He shared with us that his journey through basketball has been quite the rollercoaster, but that the passion has always been bar none. Maulik did not play his junior or senior year in high-school and went on to red-shirt in junior college and then landed a spot playing overseas in Mexico.
Maulik loves to travel and play basketball and when we asked him what he liked to do in his free time, his only response was “I can show you better than I can tell you.” We’ll make sure to feature him on our first “behind the scenes” on one of his traveling ventures.
With his experiences here and in Mexico, Maulik should bring another level of heat to our group of guards. We want to give a warm welcome to Maulik and can’t wait to see how his passion and competitive nature boost up the team.
