Yesterday a few current Cats stopped by Rondo’s Camp Rondo at the Mid-American Sports Center to surprise some of the young campers. They also gave some time to the media, including the Courier-Journal’s Steve Jones who transcribed the interviews.
Here are a view things of interest from the interviews:
Disappointed Booker won’t be in a better area:
“That’s my boy. I’m happy for him. He’s out in Phoenix. I wanted him to be in Miami for the weather and to go out and visit him. But I’m really happy for him.”
Briscoe is a ‘crazy’ dude:
“That’s very big for us because that gives us another guard, more depth. Last year we have 10 guys, and we don’t know how many we’re going to have this year. Me and (Isaiah) Briscoe, he’s a crazy dude. He’s funny. It’s going to be a lot of fun. Playing with them in the backcourt, I can’t wait.”
I can’t hide anymore:
“It changes a lot. I was able to hide behind Andrew a little bit, so more of the pressure is on him.”
Isn’t quite at 100% yet:
“I’m doing all the lifting and conditioning with the team. I’m not playing with them, but I am running on the track with them, doing footwork drills with them.”
This team vs. last:
“I think we’re going to be a good team again. We’re going to have great guards. We’ll still have a couple bigs. Cal will put us in the best system, and whatever offense we run, I feel that we’ll be good again. We’re not going to be last year’s team. We can try, but last year was a great team. We just have got to make our own mark, make our own stamp.”
