Congrats on the 124-101 win over Westestede. It had a little NBA feeling from the score didn’t it?

Yea that just means exactly like the NBA, no defense was being played. Nah, but it was a fast break fast pace game most of the whole game.

Talk a little about the 40 minutes. They scored a lot also. When was this game decided early or was it a lot closer than it looked?

We controlled the game the whole time but they also scored a lot because they hit many 3s and a lot of and 1s. Even with that we pretty much had the game won in the 1st quarter.

Was this game decided on the boards? You grabbed an incredible 23 offensive rebounds. Did you have some extra Kevin Love’s? Was this the best performance on the boards this season?

Rebounding was big for sure but I think we won because we had so many guys play well. Even guys coming from the bench.

Bargteheide had 6 guys reach double figures in points. Where do you rate this offensive performance on the season?

As a team, probably our most explosive offensive game of the season for sure. It was nice to see other guys get buckets especially coming from the bench.

Were you extra motivated after the ejection last weekend? You had another fine game.

Anytime I have an ‘off game’ I always go extra hard that next week with my training to make sure I bounce back even harder. So you will rarely see my have 2 off nights in a row.

You had a stat line of 29/5/6/3 and shot the ball well. How do you rate your performance considering what happened last weekend?

I had 17 points in the 1st quarter and I believe I was like 5/5 and didn’t miss a shot so that was my best 1st quarter of the season and I have had some amazing 1st quarters this season.

What do you go through mentally when you reach the line only 3 times? How tough is that offensive balance in general so you can get all areas flowing every game?

I don’t mind not going to the line as much some games because games like this one I get it going from the outside so I’m not attacking the basket as much. Abu Abaker usually is taking most of the free throws because he puts a lot of pressure on the defense every play which opens up the outside for me.

You next play Aschersleben a team you beat by 5 this season. What will be key to getting win?

The key is to play a lot better and more aggressive defense than we did last weekend. We also need to minimize our mistakes. It won’t be an easy win but I believe my team can get the job done.

Thanks Jeremy for the chat.
