Managing Editor

Phil joined B5Q as its basketball editor in September 2010 after three and a half years running Hoops Marinara, a Wisconsin basketball blog. Basketball recruiting and graphic design are his specialties. Wisconsin beating Duke at the Kohl Center in 2009 is probably one of the greatest things that's ever happened to him.
