    Pronunciations

    My friend and I were debating how to discuss a few last names of players on Iowa State. Here are the ones we know fo sho.

    Ejim(edge-um)

    Lucious (loo-shiss)

    Niang (nee-yang)

    Okoro (o-core-o)

    We were debating Palo. Is it pronounced (paul-o) or (pal-o) or (pay-lo)?
