Chris thanks for talking to germanhoops.com Where are you at the moment and how good is basketball life for you at the moment?
Hello Miles, thanks for having me. Basketball life is a grind every day but the results are good so I can’t really complain too much.
If someone had told you in September of 2018 that Vechta would be in third place at the end of January 2019 what would you have thought?
I don’t know if I would believe that because there are some really good clubs in this league and the level of competition is so high.
Congrats on the great season your having. Does it feel like a real Cinderella story or do you feel like as competitors you would be selling yourself short knowing the potential the team had.
Thank you Miles. I guess to the spectators that only see our games and box scores on the weekend it can seem like a Cinderella story because nobody had high expectations for us. However, the players and coaching staff in the locker room work hard all through the week so it is not really a surprise when we beat some of the good teams because we put in the work to do it
