Head Coach Paul Mills on Malone
“I’m excited about Kaelen joining our team here at ORU. We found ourselves in a position looking for an additional guard late in the year due to injuries so we are fortunate to get a player and a person of Kaelen’s caliber. Kaelen spent two years involved as a player at a wonderful program at Wichita State and coaches there raved about his character and work ethic. I’m confident Kaelen will add value to ORU this season, on and off the court.”
