The American spoke with SDNA about his experience in Kazakhstan and his relationship with coach Papatheodorou.
Per SDNA, "There is no better feeling than that, I felt that the whole hard work of my team in last week's trainings was finally paid off! It was a very demanding week for us and our head coach pushed us to the limit. It was also an excellent week of trainings, winning this dramatic way was simply fantastic. Coach Papatheodorou allowed me to decide what to do during our last attack, he decided to use an isolation play with me. He trusts me more than any other coach in the past, so when that thing happened, I decided to go for the victory. When I actually scored with the buzzer-beater, it was simply... amazing!
