Larry thanks for talking to German Hoops again. Congrats on winning the Krombacher challenge in Hagen. How awake and alive was the home crowd already in this young preseason?
The home crowd was very active this weekend, I love the fans in Hagen. They take real pride in being our fans and they really our like our sixth man out there. They are definitely ready for me and the regular season to start!
Phoenix Hagen Beat 2010 Eurochallenge winner BG Goettingen and Beko BBL team Telekom Baskets Bonn. In a way this was a title for Phoenix Hagen. Despite it being a pre season tournament that doesn´t mean anything, how much could you be thrilled about this win?
It’s always good to Win no matter what you are playing for. It sends a good message in how we are going to be in the upcoming season. Being able to finally play against a team in the BBL this pre season definitely helped us build a sense of confidence. But we still were excited about the Win!
