WHY GAMBLE CHOSE SANTA CLARA: "I chose Santa Clara because it has been my dream school since I went to the basketball camp in 2007. Santa Clara University has the perfect campus and the school is located in one of the best places in the world. The school is one of the top schools in the country, so the academics part is a big reason why I chose SCU. The coaching staff at SCU is a perfect fit for my playing style and the players on the team are all great people to be around."
