Postseason Q&A: Tony Chennault

The word that best describes Tony Chennault is "winner." That is something he and his teammates did quite a bit last season at Neumann Goretti. Chennault led his team to a Catholic League title as well as a District championship while averaging around 19 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists.

Tate Myers: How did your season go this year Tony?
Tony Chennault: "It went great. We had a 26-3 record and won the Catholic League and District. We had an 18 game winning streak up until we lost in the state playoffs. Everyone really stepped up this year."

TM: Talk about which parts of your game you improved on most this season.
TC: "I really worked on being an even better team leader. I worked on being more vocal on the court. I also think I really improved on my court vision and tried to make the game easier on my teammates."

TM: In your opinion, what makes a great point guard?
TC: "Someone that is under control at all times no matter the circumstance. Also, someone who never gets rattled. You also need to be able to put your teammates in a good scoring position and your team in a position to win games."

TM: What can Wake fans expect from Tony Chennault when gets on campus?
TC: "I'm a guy that has a great will to win and I will do what it takes to do just that. By the time I graduate from Wake, I want the fans to say "that kid was a winner." I don't care if I am considered a great shooter or scorer or whatever. I just want to be known as a point guard who won games."

* Chennault noted he plans on participating in various events this spring and summer including the Steve Nash Camp, Reebok All-American Camp, NBA Camp, and the Chris Paul Backcourt Skills Academy which will be held in Winston-Salem. Chenneult also said he would be playing in the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions this May which is held in the Triangle area of North Carolina. He will be playing for his AAU team, Team Philly.
