LDA1012- The Mexicans took everything. This is the Final Four MVP, the one who highlighted the team collective game and attitude change with the arrival of coach Pep Claros to confront the Americas League. Meet the basis from Stanford University.
- You were the surprise of the tournament or we didn’t know the Pioneros game?
In general, I do not like read newspapers and listen the television and radio’s point of views. So, I didn’t know who was the favorite to win the tournament. Our coach told us that no one talked about Pioneros before the Final Four, instead the people mentioned the teams of Argentina and Brazil. Then I realized we were not among the favorites.
- What we saw on the court is the game traditionally implemented by the team?
The traditional adjective is very general. But we are a team. We do not have a star with a household name and that is positive because the twelve have the opportunity to play. We play as a team.
- Is your greatest achievement to have been announced the Final Four MVP?
It was a surprise to have received this award. I’m very proud of it, but any player of our team could be the one. I try to play the game in every posible way, play hard and do what I can on the court.
- How much contributed to the team the arrival of Pep Claros?
Pep is a great coach. We wouldn’t have been in the Final Four without him. He changed our attitude and mind. That was a key for us.
- Are you still in Pioneros next season?
I do not know, I came to Cancun in November last year. I had a great time in town with the administration and my teammates. I'd like to go back but I have to listen the offers and then decide on my career.
