Congrats on the huge 104-91 win over The ETB Miners. How good did it feel snapping the four game losing streak?
It felt great snapping the streak. Guys really came to play, I’m glad we were able to squeeze out the win.
Another shoot out game. What was different in this game that you hadn’t been able to do in previous games?
The difference was we made shots and we took care of the ball, that’s what got us in the win column.
Talk a little about the 40 minutes. What were the best phases of the game and what was key in crunch-time for the win?
The best phases were us playing together and making shots down the stretch, when we are NOT turning the ball over consistently, we are a tough team to beat.
How vital were the 7 extra possessions that you had to get the win?
It was beautiful, seeing guys put forth effort to box out and play defense for the entire shot clock was the key component and not allowing second chance points, that enabled us to capitalize on our possessions.
Did you see any change in how the team defended? What steps did you see on the defensive end?
Yes we put forth the extra effort route so we could be successful in the end.
Boxing out and playing the entire shot clock is what helped us.
You had another normal day at the office with 29/4/7/3 stats. What is your summary of your performance?
I was actually happy with this one because we got the win and guys were making shots on the offensive end.
You next play Deuzter who you beat 79-70 in the first game. What memories do you have of that game?
I know I was able to get my guys going hitting shots that night and we need to box out even more and be disciplined for the whole shot clock, with that I see us in a very high win percentage for that game.
You beat them despite turning the ball over 20 times. What else will be key for securing the win?
Thanks John for the chat.
