Congrats on the huge 90-47 win over Baeren. Was this more than just a normal day at the office?
Anytime we can put a win of this margin together should be celebrated. We came in focused and kept it over the course of the game.
How important can a blow out win be so late in the season?
It is very important things are clicking well for us and it shows that we are hungry and ready to take care of business.
Talk a little about the 40 minutes. How quickly did the team decide the win? Was it over by half-time?
We started off hot from the beginning playing great defense. Led the whole game. Our coaches really did a great job preparing us for this game.
Obviously defense won you this game. What do you feel was the biggest strength on the defensive end on this night?
We communicated and played with intensity. We had very little miscommunication and rebounded well.
Wallabies totally crushed them on the boards securing 16 offensive rebounds. Was this one of the best rebounding games of the season?
Our bigs have really stepped up and started rebounding like crazy. They are the reason for this stat for sure.
You had another solid game with 28/5/2/2/2 stats. How happy were you with your game?
I’m happy that I was able to contribute to the win. Most importantly but I’m never satisfied with my play.
On the offensive end it seemed like you picked your spots well again.
My goal is to simplify the game and be aggressive. I’m happy the efficiency is showing. I want to score big but not take a lot of shots to do so.
You next play Grand Saconnex a team you beat by 34 points. What will be key to getting the win?
The Key to this game is respecting our opponent. Just because we won easily before doesn’t necessarily mean it will be the same . We have to stay humble, focused and execute our game plan.
Thanks Chris for the chat.
