MWW: As a team, you have gotten off to a hot start and surprised a lot of people so far this year, what do you think the biggest contributing factor to the hot start as a team has been?
XD: I think it’s a man by the name of Graham Ike. That guy right there is a problem, and he is going to continue to be a problem. I would say a lot of our success is catered to his ability to put the ball in the basket and to defend. I also think just all of us as a unit on the defensive end. I also think it comes down to us being a good rebounding team, and getting a lot of second chance points, while not giving up a lot of second chance points.
MWW: When I was young one of the first players I remember watching was Uche Nsonwu-Amadi. I know he has been involved a little bit with the team from his social media. What kind of interactions have you guys had with him?
XD: Yeah! He has come to a couple practices, but he has been more involved with Graham, and helping him on this journey that he is on, giving him little nuggets here and there.
MWW: Okay here are some rapid-fire questions to wrap it up: Outside of the court where is your favorite place in Laramie to hang out?
XD: So, I go to this restaurant a lot called Accomplice with my friend Cooper. I would say probably there. We go a decent amount.
MWW: Who was your favorite player growing up?
XD: Kevin Durant! I was a huge OKC fan growing up.
MWW: If the team played a game of HORSE who would win?
XD: Oh, that’s a good question. One of our walk-ons John Grigsby he might win that. He’s sneaky with those games. I don’t know why but if its one of those games he turns something on and he can just make it from anywhere.
MWW: What is your favorite arena outside of Laramie that you have played in?
XD: I played at the Suns’ arena one time in AAU and that was pretty fun so I would probably say that.
MWW: Last one: Being from Arizona, how has it been adjusting to the Laramie winters?
XD: I feel like I have adjusted pretty well, I definitely had to purchase a couple extra coats that I didn’t have coming up here, but I am inside most of the time anyway so it doesn’t bother me too much.
MWW: Well I appreciate your time man, thanks for sitting down and answering my questions.
XD: Of course man, any time!
