“He’s very similar to Lamar Patterson,” said Knight. “He’s kind of started off as a 4 or a 3, and now he has settled in and he knows where the ball is going to come to him. He’s been very confident in taking what the defense gives him.”
The guys also asked Knight about the lack of offense in college basketball and the state of the game in general.
“The state of the game has become shoot 3’s and make lay-ups,” said Knight.READ MORE: $13B From COVID-19 Relief Bill Headed To Pennsylvania Governments
Joe and Chris wrap up the interview by asking Knight about the difference in the game now from when he played. Knight says if his teams were on the floor, they would of fouled out in the first five minutes.
“You don’t know what is going to be called, what’s not going to be called from game to game,” said Knight. “When we played there was no calls, the game was very physical.”
Knight says when they were preparing for the games in practice, they just let things go. But now he says, they call more fouls in practice to simulate what the game situation would be like.MORE NEWS: Hopewell High School Announces Plans To Hold New-Look Prom
