Congrats on the convincing 102-87 win over Oldenburg. Was this just another fine day at the office for Bargteheide?
They played very good at home so we are just happy to come away with the win.
Talk a little about he 40 minutes. Was this another game where you were in control for the 40 minutes?
They played us pretty good and hit a lot of shots that kept them in the game but we pretty much controlled this game from start to finish. Shout out to them for the valuable effort they put up.
Outside shooting and taking care of the ball were huge. What other area’s of the team game sparkled?
I think we played great defense at times, especially out on the perimeter. We had twice as many steals as they did so I think we did a pretty good job defensively.
Is it fair to say that the last 2 games were the best back to back offensive performances of the season? Do you feel like the team can continue to sustain this?
I think when we won 4 or 5 straight games in a row was our best stretch this season. But these 2 performances from the last 2 games were also pretty good. I feel like we can if we keep everyone healthy and keep our confidence that we have right now.
You had another explosive game with 39 points. When did you know that you had to take more responsibility than usual?
Well honestly my foot has been feeling a lot better lately so I’m able to do a lot more moves and do more things with the ball than I was able to first coming back from injury. So I have just been more aggressive than usual but my teammates has also stepped up their game also.
You shot the three well and took 9 shots. Were you feeling it early?
Well for the past 3-4 games I have had great explosive first quarters and when I get off to these good starts it’s usually going to be a long night for the other team.
With NBA minutes you could have had a quadruple double. Was this one of your better games this season at both ends?
By far my best overall game of the season, maybe even 1 of my best overall games of my career.
The next game is against top team BG Berlin 2000 and top scorer Shawn Scott. How much are you looking forward to this battle?
Well to be honest I haven’t really saw him play or don’t know much about him but I don’t care who’s in the other jerseys, I’m coming for blood regaardless.
Playing BG Berlin 2000 will be another test. Will the team be ready defensively?
We will prepare all week and we know this game will not be easy but I’m sure our coach will prepare us as well as she can and it’s our job to come out and handle business.
Thanks Jeremy for the chat.
