How would you describe the team’s recent success?

“I would say we are playing much more together than we were earlier in the year. We are running our sets better, playing better defense, and our bench has a lot more energy.”

What’s the biggest difference from last year’s team to this year’s team?

“I would say our team chemistry definitely improved. It wasn’t as good as we thought it would be at the beginning with all the new players on the team, but it’s definitely where we like it right now. It definitely translates to the way we play, too.”

What is one area you feel like you can improve personally?

“I would say my shooting definitely could improve. Our coach has been emphasizing it a lot in practice, and I would just like to see an improvement in that area.”

What would you say is the strongest part of the team?

“I would say once we get on a great run offensively, it’s just really fun to play with these guys. I think our offense is the best part of our team because we just have so many guys who are excellent at scoring the basketball.”
