Congrats on the 89-63 win over Bernex. How is the general feeling always for a player winning again after a loss?
After a loss you want to do what ever you can to get back in the win column. We were very happy with how we came out focused to get this win.
Talk a little about the 40 minutes. Did you set the tone from the start or was there a time when Bernex was in the game?
I believe from the start we were focused to do whatever it took to get the win. It started on defense. They played a tough game but we handled their comebacks and played a full team game.
What was the biggest strength for the team, the rebounding or forcing 25 turnovers?
I think it was our defense as a whole. We wanted to force turnovers but also when we couldn’t get steals we focused on defensive rebounds. They were both vital parts.
Michel Bakekolo had an efficient double double. Talk a little about how you have experienced his game this season?
I think Michel has a bright future. He is a talented youth with physical gifts. When it all comes together he will be a great talent for years to come.
You had a strong game with 28 points. How efficient do you feel were you in this game?
I had a goal to be more aggressive this game so I wanted to put more pressure on the defense . I am happy to help the team with my play this game.
You went 12/12 from the free throw line. Were you more aggressive than usual?
I was very aggressive trying to force the issue and luckily I got some calls. I’m happy I took advantage from the stripe.
The next game is against Baehren. How excited are to play a team you haven’t played against yet?
I am always excited to play. I haven’t played against this team yet which can make things more interesting. I am looking forward to next game.
Thanks Chris for the chat.
