Wallabies suffered a 79-71 loss against GC Zurich. It was your third loss in your third game. Does every new loss hurt more than the last?
This one hurt because I feel we played a complete game and lost it in the last 2 minutes. This was a tough one to let slip away.
Talk a little about the 40 minutes. When was this game decided?
The last 2 minutes of the 4th they went on a run and we couldn’t make up for . They went from down 3 to up 7.
Wallabies rebounded better and had less turnovers. Where was this game lost?
Little plays and execution at the end if the game.
Bench points was a problem as the team only had 3. How much pressure do you and the other starters feel when you seemingly have to do so much more?
I have faith our bench will get things together. I think they will be better for us in the future and make their mark on the game.
You filled the stat sheet well, but have had 16 turnovers in 3 games. Have you been studying extra film to get best acquainted to the league play?
I have been studying the league. I am the main ball handler and I think it’s an adjustment period and getting chemistry with my teammates . I know this number will decrease.
You have made a massive jump in your three point shooting percentages compared to Bensheim. What has changed?
Nothing has changed honestly if my stats were shown correctly from Bensheim it would show I was shooting 50% there also . I worked on my game this summer and really made it a focal point to shoot more 3s
You next play Grand Saconn who have an identical record with you. What will be key for the win?
This game is important for us in the standings we have dropped a few games and I think we need it for our confidence moving forward.
Thanks Chris for the chat.
