Former NU BB Player Covers Minneapolis Protests for CNN


Omar Jimenez, a walk-on PG for the basketball team in 2011-2013, has made national headlines for being detained by police along with his camera crew while covering the Minneapolis protests on the morning of May 29, 2020. Omar was academic all-B1G in 2013, and he started interning at CNN while at NU. He would be an interesting interview if any of the InsideNU editors have the chance to get one with him.
