Ivan Rabb’s day would make a stumping politician sweat: up before dawn, a workout at 7 a.m., breakfast, school from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., study hall until 5:30 p.m., another workout, practice until 7 p.m., then back home for dinner and another few hours of schoolwork. Thing is, he’s only 17. But you don’t become ESPN’s number one high school junior basketballer in the country without hustling. A lot.
