You suffered a tough 95-66 loss to Stade. How tough was this coming from a 2 game winning streak having to suffer a blow out?

It was tough because it was a big loss in a Home game in front of the home crowd so that’s what made it even worse.

Was it just one of those days where nothing worked? You shot under 40% from the free throw line.

Well we had a rough week of practice due to everyone being sick and illnesses and injuries, including myself so I think mentally we were just not prepared for this game. They were 15-1 for a reason.

What makes it so difficult to play this team?

I honestly think we just missed a lot of shots we normally hit. Stade played good but I think we beat ourselves this game.

Bargteheide couldn’t contain Boadu and Angelats who controlled the boards and playmaking. Was it easy to see that guys like this have played at higher levels?

Yea they definitely did their thing for their team. They played very solid which we knew they would.

You scored 11 points and had a tough shooting day. Did you notice that they had done their home work on you?

Honestly I had 10 points in the 1st quarter and came out of the game with 3 minutes left in the 1st quarter and I had just got to cooking. So I was pulled out in the middle of doing what I do so when I came back in the game I just couldn’t find my rhythm again.

What will you focus on most this week so you will be best prepared for Bergedorf?

Well we also had another week of a lot of illnesses so we will just have to come up with enough strength to win this game. I’m sure they won’t make it easy for us.

How fitting is it meeting 2/15 Bergedorf after a loss like that? You won the first meeting by 16 points. What will be key to getting the win?

They key is just to not play down or focus on their record but to play the same way we’ve been playing all season to get us the important victories that we do have.

Thanks Jeremy for the chat.
