I. AAU & SELF ANALYSIS
EM: Congrats on the great Spring/Summer, you turned some heads with your ability. Can you tell us how things went for OBC as a team and for you individually?
CR: As a team we came together as one and told each other every game that we are the best team in our eyes, and the only way to prove that was to beat the other team by as much as possible, getting everyone involved. Individually I wanted to do what I do best for the team, wether it’s making the extra pass or diving on the floor for loose balls or hitting that shot. I just wanted to win and play my part.
EM: Can you describe your game for those that are not familiar?
CR: I lock up on defense, if you give me too much space I’m taking the shot. I can have more assists than points.
EM: How often do you work on your game?
CR: During the season everyday, offseason 3 times a week because I play football as well.
