Isaiah is an elite, athletic guard, who can play the point or be a scorer for his team. Isaiah's length is an advantage and sets him apart from other guards in the B-League.  

Isaiah thrives in an up-tempo environment and is dominant in transition. He can beat his man off the dribble and loves to drive to the basket. He is a confident 3 pt shooter and consistently shoots  over 30% from beyond the arc.

Isaiah is a constant defensive threat when he is on the floor. He knows how to use his strong body to keep pressure on his opponents at all times. 

Isaiah plays with passion and loves to win. He will do whatever it takes, and play whatever role is required of him, to help his team beat their rival. Isaiah can be relied upon to bring energy to the court, whether he is starting or playing the role of a dependable sixth man.

Isaiah enjoys any opportunity to engage with his community. He speaks fluent English and conversational Japanese.
