CONCORD WENT JUST 7-10 LAST SEASON. HOW IMPROVED ARE YOU GUYS?

"We've improved a lot. We're getting great senior leadership and have depth. We've got a tough schedule ahead of us, but we're pretty excited about the season."

WHAT'S IT BEEN LIKE PLAYING FOR SHAWN MCCUEN ALL THESE YEARS?

"He gets so emotional sometimes that I think he's going to have a heart attack. But I love him to death. He looks out for us."

YOU DIDN'T PLAY BASKETBALL LAST WINTER. WHERE WERE YOU?

"I played (club) hockey for South Bend Adams. I liked it. I'm not sure what I'll do this year.

WHAT'S NEXT AFTER HIGH SCHOOL?

"I'm just evaluating my options. I've got two Division I (offers) I'm thinking about with Butler and Western Michigan."

DOES YOUR BROTHER BEING AT BUTLER MAKE YOU MORE OR LESS LIKELY TO GO THERE, AND IS THERE A SIBLING RIVALRY?

"No rivalry at all. We're pretty close. He supports what I do, and I support him. I'll pick based on the school most importantly. There would be positives and negatives playing with my brother, but I'll decide based on the school."
