Jim Parisi: Day off Gilvydas? When do you come home?
Gilvydas Biruta: On monday. Today is a day off. We just got to the Como lake area
Hey I did notice one thing….
you had a freakin MONSTER game and didn’t mention a thing lol..you must have SO enjoyed that..12 rebounds..
Gilvydas: Yeah, that game was so much fun. And those rebounds were special because I got as many offensive rebounds as I got defensive.
I really enjoy crashing the glass.
Jim: We know the Italian team wasn’t TOO solid..but what did they do really well?
Gilvydas: They were experienced and were great at helping each other by playing smart, cutting hard and screening.
Jim: The team seems to be coming along nice. X is shooting..Iffy has a few nice moves…EC is solid for a freshman..what do you think?
Gilvydas: Yes, love how the team is looking. Don’t forget Hass and Matt. Our freshmen have fire and desire to win. It’s really encouraging.
Jim: After so much time without playing competitively..what were you surprised didn’t get rusty about your game?
Gilvydas: I did not have any surprises. I think we practice so hard that our practices are harder than actual games.
Jim: Will you be climbing the walls waiting for the season to start?
Gilvydas: I kinda “tasted” it and now I think about daily improvement of the team.
