Finance executive and owner of the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks Marc Lasry visited the Brandeis University campus Monday, where he spoke to students about finance, the business of basketball and offered some advice.

"Find the things you really love, because whatever you love you will succeed in," he said.

Lasry is the chairman, chief executive officer and co-founder of Avenue Capital Group, which was established in 1995 and now manages approximately $13 billion in assets. He and Wesley Edens purchased the Bucks in 2014.

Monday's event, held in Gosman Sports and Convocation Center, was co-sponsored by Brandeis Athletics and the Hiatt Career Center. Lasry met with student-athletes in Auerbach Arena, then spoke and took questions from students in the Napoli Trophy Room.
