“It's not really an adjustment, it's just basketball. If I have to change it, I have to change it. It's not a big deal. The two is just more free. I feel more free there. It was just a learning experience. I'm still learning the point and learning at a different position now. I still will always know how to play the point.”

The defense against Mercer was probably the best it has been all season. How are things coming along on that end?

“We really adjusted to the rules and are really coming along, working it in practice, not reaching.”

Has that adjustment to the new rules been tough?

“Definitely. Some of these refs, they're so quick to call a foul. If you just touch them they call a foul, so it's kind of hard. Sometimes it isn't a foul but because of the new rules, they just want to call it.”

The offense hasn't been an issue on this team though. What's been the key to the quick offensive start?

“The way we just look for one another and the way we share the ball. There's no head case on this team. There's nobody trying to just take the shots. We're just together as a team.”
