What was it like being on the same court with ex NBA player Bobby Brown and 2004 NBA Draft pick Rickey Paulding?

They are great team players and it was exciting playing against them. They both kept telling me during the game on the court to keep my head up and keep shooting.

BBC Bayreuth have started the season slowly. On what things does the team still need to work on?

We need to work on our team chemistry, but we are very motivated and work hard in practice each day.
