Q: Gary, welcome to UCF.
Would you tell us about your plan and what we should expect to see?
Obviously coming down to UCF I realized that this is like mainly a football
predominant school. The talent we have on this team this year and with a couple
of players like Kingsley and myself who are from New York. We’ll try to bring
that flavor to the game we'll try to even it out.
Why did you choose to
I'm happy to have an opportunity to be playing basketball. Coach Kirk Speraw
came down to
see me playing in a National Tournament in Hutchinson, Kansas last season.
That's when they first got interested in my game. When I came down here and I
like the team atmosphere and the coaching staff. I liked what they had to bring
to the table as far as what I got to bring to the table. It's a good match for
me, so I thought the best move would be coming to UCF.
Q: What do you want to do
after basketball here at UCF?
I want to work in the school system.
Q: Your home is in
Detroit, Michigan. How will your family get a chance to watch you play
Detroit it's kind of far
from here and so the only game that they came really catch is when we go up to
New York against Niagara. Niagara is about three and half hours away from
home. I think they'll get a chance to come out and see me playing then. But
other than that, I'll be mailing them the tapes
Q: Tell us about Golden
Knights Men’s basketball team
The team is pretty good as
far as sharing the ball. This is the team that I've been on that everyone
willing to do that. In a sense that make the team better. I’ll always learn
that you got to pass the good shot to get a better shot. It seems that everyone
likes to give up the ball and we will always get a better shot, in an essence it
will make us a better team in the long run.
I most probably know how Dexter Lyons played the game. What will you do to
make the team better?
I love to play with Dexter. I came out here in a visit and play with him I was
thinking that I could really use him on the wing. I play the point guard and I
like to distribute the ball. So I figured that if I could get a wing player who
really likes to work hard as I work, the sky is the limit as far as playing in
the A-Sun Tournament.
Q: I know that this is
still early in the season, but would you talk about the team chemistry?
With it been so early in
the season, the chemistry that we have all together are very well. No matter
how we switched team in practice, we seem to play pretty well together.
