Vincent Monaghan in his Iowa Central Tritons uniform.

FOLLOWING in his brother Patrick’s footsteps, 19-year-old Mardan local Vincent Monaghan has recently embarked on a new chapter of his basketball journey, now attending Iowa Central Community College, Fort Dodge in the United States of America.
Currently studying business administration, Vincent hopes to receive a full scholarship next year due to his prowess on the basketball court.
Drawing inspiration from some of the greatest to ever touch a basketball, such as Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, Vincent wants “to be the best I can possibly be”, the mindset which he credits as the primary reason behind his decision to travel to the states.
Growing up with four older siblings has adequately prepared Vincent for the collegian living conditions, residing in a four-storey apartment complex and sharing the accommodation with four roommates.
Although full of anticipation and excitement for the adventure ahead, the journey thus far has not been without struggle for Vincent.
