TOC: One-on-One With Chad Millard

<B>Raleigh, NC - </b>There is no doubt that Blessed IJN could be the most talented team in the Gibbons Tournament. "Blessed" with nearly ten D-1 prospects, the AAU squad based in Indiana had little trouble in their first two games.

One reason was the consistent play of 6'8 SG/SF Chad Millard who finished with 19 and 13 points respectively. Chad took some time following a huge win against Garner Road to go one-on-one with StateFans.

Brewster Academy SG/SF Chad Millard

StateFans: How do you feel you played today?"

Chad Millard: "I didn't play good, but we won and that's what matters. I think I had 13 though."

SF: Your team looks strong. How do you feel your chances are in the tournament?

Millard: "Well now since we've got another big man I think we have a good shot. I haven't seen the other teams though so you never know."

SF: As far as high school, I read your are switching high schools and will now be going to Brewster Academy. Why the transfer?

Millard: "It's more about playing better competition. I just want to play against better guys on a regular basis. At my old high school we had a pretty good team but didn't really play good competition."

SF: How did you like your unofficial visit to NC State?

Millard: "It went great… I liked it a lot. I really like the coaching staff… they are good guys. I just feel comfortable here."

SF: Did you meet any of the players?

Millard: "Yes, I met Julius [Hodge]. I liked him a lot… he's a funny dude. He just told me what it's like at NC State."

SF: What do you like about NC State's offense and Coach Sendek?

Millard: "I really like the way they move the ball on offense and have such good spacing. They keep everyone extended above the foul line, and I could see myself fitting into that. Coach Sendek's a personable guy and I felt comfortable around him."

SF: What other schools are you looking at right now?

Millard: "Louisville, Missouri, Providence, Pittsburgh, and Arizona."

SF: Do you have any favorites?

Millard: "I'd have to say my top three is Louisville, NC State, and Providence."

SF: Do you have any other unofficial visits lined up?

Millard: "I'm going to Louisville later this summer. The team I'm playing with is based in Indiana, and Louisville is only a three and a half hour drive from Fort Wayne."

SF: Do you have a timeframe for a decision?

Millard: "Not right now. I want to take some official visits in the fall when the students are back on campus."
