Congrats on the 103-63 win over Bergedorf. Was it another day at the office for the team?

Yea we already expected to win, we just wanted to make sure we win the right way and not yield down to their level just because of them being last place.

Talk a little about the 40 minutes. Did Bargteheide get the convincing lead early and cruise to the win?

Bergedorf played us as tough as they could and put up a good fight but we were just all around too strong so it was a convincing lead most of the game.

Bargteheide had a great offensive night, but how crucial was the defense? You held Bergedorf to terrible shooting percentages.

We played very good , tough defense most of the game. And that was the game plan to play tough defense and get offense from defense and that’s what we did very well.

You easily controlled the boards 43-24. Was this possibly the best team rebounding game of the season?

It seemed like everyone contributed from 1-12. Yea we were just much stronger on the boards. Every time the ball was shot we crashed the glass.

A guy like Steffen Hoenickie proved this with 5 rebounds in 8 minutes.

Steffen came in the game and made the most of his time. I’m happy he was able to have a big contribution.

You had a solid game with 31 points and 6 rebounds but 0 assists. Can you ever remember not getting an assist?

Well actually I had maybe 1 or 2 assists but like I have said before, this league doesn’t treally keep the assists 100% correct.

How pleased were you with your defensive performance coming off a game where the team allowed so little points?

We talked all week in practice that we wanted to put the pressure on them defensively early in the game so we can set the tone, and that’s exactly what we did.

You next play weak team Oldenburg. How crucial is this game for continuing to climb the standings?

We know we must win this game in order to get to the playoffs so we won’t take this game for granted.

Thanks Jeremy for the chat.
