College careerEdit

Haluska played College basketball with the Iowa Hawkeyes, and scored 1,847 points in his collegiate career. He was named to the 2007 All-Big Ten Conference First Team just weeks after being named the 2007 Academic All-American of the Year.

Haluska originally started his college career at Iowa Hawkeyes, before transferring to the University of Iowa after his freshman year. He was named to the Big 12 Conference's All-Freshman Team in his lone year in the conference.
