Considering that Zeke is the key to a great upcoming season, I am going to throw all caution to the wind and declare him as my favorite current player. zeke comes off great in this recent interview. If he plays as great as he sounds, we are off and running for the 2010-2011 season.
Below is an excerpt of the interview given after his second year at John A. Logan College:
What do you feel are your strengths on the basketball court?
“My strengths on the court to me are my shooting ability and my ability to get to the basket and create for my teammates.”
What do you feel are some things you need to work on?
“I need to work on my off the ball defense and deep 3 point shooting.”
What schools did you considered before choosing UCLA and what led you to choosing your school?
“I liked Nevada, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Alabama. I choose UCLA because I really liked the coaching staff and how they work. They have always produced great point guards so I am hoping to be the next one they produce. It’s also a great academic school.”
As we all know, junior college players are expected to contribute immediately. What do you think will be your role for the Bruins next season?
“Coach Howland has said he wants me to not only create for my team but look for my own shot too. He also wants me to be a leader for this young team and he is really big on my defense.”
I predict that we will be pleasantly surprised with how good this kid is. Go Bruins!
