What's your outlook on the playoffs?

We can do well if we play like a team and play good defense. I think we can win some games in the playoffs.

What did you learn last year from sitting out because of your injury?

I mainly wanted to get back and start to play immediately. I watched how the varsity played, and I was able to get down the system mentally. It just made me want to get out there.

What did you work on in the offseason to better your game?

I was able to play the last four games of the season, so during the offseason I was at full-speed. I worked on my shooting and ball-handling.

Who do you model your game after?

I'd say Blake Griffin because he hustles for all his points, and he works hard for each one.

Who's role model and why?

Definitely my dad because he played college ball, and he has taught me everything I know.

What's your favorite vacation spot?

Holiday Camplands in Ohio. We mainly hunt and fish when we go there.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
