Career highlights and awards

Jason Daisy (born September 30, 1974)[1] is an American former professional basketball player. He enjoyed a career in various countries, including Israel and Belgium, despite never making a National Basketball Association (NBA) roster.[2]

Daisy, a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, attended South High School and graduated in 1992.[3] He enrolled at University of Northern Iowa (UNI) where he would go on to play four years of basketball for the Panthers.[4] A 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m) point guard, he was named the Missouri Valley Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Year as a senior in 1996–97.[4] He was the first player from UNI to win the award at that point (Adam Koch became the second in 2009–10). In a game against Central Florida during his junior year, Daisy tied a school record with 21 free throw attempts.[4] He also has the UNI record for the most career points against Missouri Valley Conference opponents only (1,121); his 1,721 overall career points rank him fourth all-time through the 2012–13 season.[4]

Today he once again resides in Minneapolis in his post-professional basketball career. He also coaches high school basketball.[3]
