Sitting down -- one of the best players in the West Coast Conference and hopefully your future NBA player Omar Sam handyman work and good out there and I. Nineteen point win against him -- up just beat him down you guys obviously have a statement to me. We sure did and you know that's that's all we wanted to leave before the game work and that's when it -- we're let's smack these guys you know and a it felt good to get it done and has some we needed to evidence to overturn it kinda get a little swagger and step and a felt so confident -- -- -- -- themselves shall call today and a you know it's it's it's exactly which you don't. You were kind of backed into corner because a lot of people that you would get hosed him would be a part of the national tournament if you couldn't beat the zags but. And that back to that corner you just came out -- get mail where did all that confidence go for a. No question that we put in and we put a lot of hours lately working on defense and we got to speak the defense wins championships and we're not the best defensive team but we've been working adding got better and a I think once you once we -- that Portland game global has Portland kind of little you know little pep in his step and -- the role -- So we know your hand when it comes the selection Sunday but what type -- seed. Do details deserve this year. Having been in that tenth spot you know. Maybe even seven but it is definitely that 710 games -- -- very fair seed for us and hopefully it's the you know the seventh and gave in San Jose. And when we talked about ten seeds seven seeds we're talking about sleepers teams that -- -- -- there maybe get to the sweet sixteen who knows maybe the elite eight. How far can your team go. I think. Worst is our goal should be sweet sixteen best case. Final four maybe national champs have -- -- dream big and that's where young team where you were a little on the wild side we work hard so anything's possible we have that that chemistry. The knock you guys may be William -- -- but to know their game united played it three times this year. I loved the -- March Madness went to big -- linkage other and I don't know it think about it and want. But with you know they better take about the what could you don't you don't mess around out there did you get a shot at bats but -- guided. You got it inside to you well. I'll let you know it's it's a battle out there and I'd. I'm doing this for for our school our community and I take it very seriously so -- definitely whoever we play him in March Madness veteran because we will. -- celebration on the court looks like you guys are just having a great time what was that like the reception you got back on campus. It was a reliable one the celebration was more tiring than actual truth I just drilled a forty -- emotionally. But hey we got back to campus in. Our coach said hey you know get ready there might be some people out here and under one this term but I can't imagine he will be nothing we pull up and sure enough to. Hundreds of people out out of from -- gym so is greater interception I actually was hold the trophy. -- hold them on the whole airport and it was a disaster they've created powerful computers so. When I walked off the bus -- -- -- open it's the school erupted it was awesome. When I've talked to your teammates and coaches they say Omar is the ultimate teammate you know he's gonna make sure -- got everyone back he wants to win as a team. But you know eventually we gotta start talking about Omar as an individual. Do you feel like your game will transition to the NBA level or is that on your mind at all as you in the tournament. Hey let me show everyone what I can do -- you get to that excellent. I mean if it is not your mind -- you don't want your problem you know it is. Being a pro some I think you have to think about every day your old level but it was time to worry about the team the only team and I think that. Hard work harder puzzle that stuff translates at any level you know Sola. Like coach -- -- last night after the game -- even nine and seven and six dollars 611 guy hustles and that some that I think you know. A lot of fuel cell you'll you'll score against Dwight Howard in the in maybe not but. Like I can box them out and stuff like that so it's I think of that aspect of my game will definitely translated and with time offense and everything else -- well. We've seen your game improve several several levels over the years just a great one person and we wish him nothing but the best guys like you. Find a way to make it because they're just sole determinant and I see a bright future for a wish him nothing but there isn't much things billowed out any time.
