Here’s a few more questions that didn’t make the paper.
What do you think is working so well for you right now?
Just trying to be aggressive and help my teammates when I‘ve got the ball in my hands and not in my hands – just trying to go after every rebound and make sure I’m providing that steady rebounding effort as well as a good scoring punch to go with that as well. I’ve just tried to be consistent. That’s all I’m worried about.
Who do you think is the up-and-coming player at this point and who has been the most productive this far?
That’s a hard question to answer just from the simple fact of I don’t try to give myself too much praise. I just work hard every day. We have a lot of guys that have been really productive and really been getting better day to day but we just haven’t had a lot of consistency as far as guys playing with confidence, as Coach has said.
I think as a team, we just have gotten better. Everybody’s been productive at different times. I think if we can all get consistent, we’re going to be fine.
I think Buddy – from the fact that he played really well at the last game. I think he had a double double is really good as a freshman to be able to do that from the guard spot … It’s just been different guy on different nights.
Last question and totally off the topic of basketball, but what was the best part of your Christmas?
To spend time with my daughter and my wife and spending Christmas together and eating some good food and getting back to practice with my teammates and working hard.
