Student-athlete spotlight: Austin Korba

Why did you choose St. Olaf? The pre-med program and the basketball team.

How long have you been playing basketball? Since I could walk. My dad played in college so both my brother and I grew up around the game and fell in love with it.

Pregame ritual? Relax and chill out. When listening to music, I go from more relaxed music to hype and pump up music, especially when I warm up.

Current pump up song? “Drip Too Hard” by Lil Baby and Gunna.

Favorite sport other than basketball? Baseball or football.

Biggest difference between high school and college? The preparation needed ahead of time and the speed of the game.

Best advice you’ve ever received? Take nothing for granted and appreciate everything. Time goes by fast, so we have to make the most of things and the time we have.
