I. AAU & SELF ANALYSIS
EM: You’re running with Kentucky Travelers on the EYBL circuit, can you tell us about how things are going as a team and for your individually?
EW: As a team, we are not as good as we should be. We are 1 and 6 in the EYBL but we have all the proper components to be a good team. As an individual, I started slow but I’m starting to present what I could be as a player.
EM: Can you describe your game for those that are not familiar and what parts of your game do you work on?
EW: I’m a 6’10 center who is a back to the basket player, passes well when it comes to outlet and double teams, and can shoot the 15 footer. The parts of my game that I need to work on is getting in better shape, adding a 3 point shot, and offense rebounding.
