Steve and Dick interviewed DJ after the game last night. DJ had some interesting things to say.
First off, I have to say that I’ve been really impressed with the interviews the players give and the easy back and forth they have with Steve and Dick. Steve has mentioned on more than one occasion about watching pre-season practices. I take this to mean that he has relatively open access to Ed’s practices - in stark contrast to JoePa’s practices which are legendary closed sessions.
Anyway, DJ spoke well and spoke with ease - just as many of our players do. That’s a credit to Ed and the staff and the kind of kids they recruit.
Here are some highlights.
DJ couldn’t explain what happened in Charleston. Just one of those things.
He admitted that the team was sort of looking forward to Virginia, Temple and then Virginia Tech. Can’t blame him for that - I think this team wants to show they are as good as a lot of ACC teams.
He gave a lot of props to SHU - said they played tough and played very well as a team. They also shot well.
He had good things to say about Frazier and Edwards.
Overall, another good interview with a PSU BB player and you could tell he was very optimistic about this season.
