Tom thanks for talking to German Hoops. What were the main reasons for the 88-67 loss against the Fraport Skyliners Juniors?

We had problems with our pick and role defense. Frankfurt stayed aggressive hitting shots against our zone. We also had some unneeded technical fouls that hurt us

Niklas Kiel is two years younger than you. What has been your impression of his game and how much potential does he have?

Kiel has a lot of potential and can really go far. He is big, can move and shoot. He has all the tools to go far.
