Q: You've got some pretty solid stats so far this summer. Talk about how the league has gone for you so far.


A: The league is going really well. It's a very competitive league. This is all new to me.


Q: What do you think about living in Iowa so far?


A: It's nice. I love it. It's definitely an adjustment from high school to college but I'm adjusting well.


Q: What about your new teammates?


A: They are great teammates. I'm meeting people from all over and getting to know new people. I'm starting to get used to everybody.


Q: What's it been like playing against Rahshon Clark?


A: He's our go guy to get us going. He's the most athletic player on our team I think. He's going to be one of the guys who will lead us.


Q: What do you think about Wesley Johnson so far? He's gotten a lot of pub so far this summer.


A: He plays well. He plays hard and he's really athletic. He's really long. He plays solid defense.


Q: Some people are comparing him to Rahshon, do you see a little bit of a comparison there?


A: I do see that. Us three were talking the other day, and Rahshon told Wes that he reminds him of himself when he was younger, so I'd say so.


Q: One thing that I know a lot of fans are looking for you to do is knock down some 3-pointers. You've proven you can do that this summer, talk about your confidence in your 3-point ball.


A: Well it's just a matter of confidence in shooting it. I want to constantly shoot it. Hopefully it goes in.


Q: Does playing in this league really make you look forward to next season?


A: It does.


Q: What about fans? Have you had the opportunity to talk to many Iowa State fans this summer?


A: I haven't talked to many but I'm starting to notice them quite a bit.


Q: So you're moved in already up in Ames?


A: Yes, that's right.


Q: Are you taking some summer classes?


A: Yes I'm taking two summer classes.


Q: How is campus life so far?


A: It's great! I love it.


Q: So what's going on tonight, why aren't you playing?
