Thanks Jarvis for talking to German Hoops. Congrats on the easy 82-60 do or die win against the Fraport Skyliners Juniors. You had a long ride home on Saturday. What was going through your mind the most after the game two win?

Put the series away in the first 5 minutes of the game. Let them know who is the better, more physical team.

Bochum could have wrapped up the series in Frankfurt had they won game one at home. How important was it for the team confidence winning two do or die games in a row?

It was important because now we know we have some toughness about ourselves and that if needed, we can dig out of a hole.

Jarvis Davis (Rostock Seawolves) I Wasn´t Dominating Every Single Night like Westbrook So I Have Work To Do

He spoke to German Hoops about basketball and his season with the RostockWolves

Jarvis thanks for talking to German Hoops. 2017 has come and we are already into April. Did you set any new years resolutions and if you did have to stayed faithful to them in the first few months?

I mean I wouldn’t call it a resolution. But I had a goal to work my hardest to get better every day individually to make myself better. I feel as if I did so. I did what I could control.

The Rostock SeaWolves closed out the regular season with a satisfying win against Recklingshausen 92-76. How important was it getting this win and going into the playoffs with confidence?

Super important. If we lost, we don’t make the playoffs. We win, we were in. So it was simple, WIN or GO HOME!

The club had their best span during the Christmas holidays having a 4 game winning streak, but since then were up and down having a 3-4 record. What do you believe were the positives and negatives in these 7 games?

We could’ve played better defense. I COULD’VE PLAYED BETTER DEFENSE. We could’ve played better offense, I could’ve been more efficient. But sometimes it not positives and negatives. Sometimes as a team, you just don’t have it. Sometimes you work hard that week, but that team is just better. Basketball isn’t rocket science. You win some, you lose some.

Jarvis thanks for talking to German Hoops. Where are you at the moment and how have you been enjoying your summer?

I’m currently at home in Columbia, South Carolina and the summer is going well. Just been getting my body right so I’ll be able to train the way I want to in a few weeks.

Congrats on signing with German Pro B team Rostock Seawolves. What do you know in general about the country Germany and it´s basketball?

I know a little bit about Germany from history classes but I don’t know much. I am excited to learn more about the country and its origins when I get there. And when it comes to the basketball obviously I know about Dirk and Dennis Schroder because they play in the US but I really don’t know much about the leagues except for they are known for having very competitive basketball.
