1340 The Fan's Weston Odom Show caught up with University of South Dakota basketball broadcaster Jay Elsen to talk about new Texas Tech grad transfer Matt Mooney. Elsen had a lot of great things to say about the newest Red Raider.

The first line out of Elsen summed up Matt Mooney in just four words: "He's the ultimate competitor."

Isn't that exactly what you expect from a guy who was recruited by Chris Beard? The points, the steals, the assists -- all of that just comes naturally to an ultimate competitor. It's what takes the good players to the highest level.

Elsen also praised Mooney off the court, calling him a "rare breed" who complimented Mooney's strong faith and honesty. Mooney is going to be a leader on the Red Raider basketball  team in the locker room and on the court.
