Kati Rausberg - An interview with the Estonish raising star - Dec 10, 2012

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

I dedicated this interview for the 23-years-old guard of Belarus side Tsmoki Minsk, the Estonish Kati Rausberg (172-G-89, college: Eckerd). After few years at Eckerd college in the U.S., one Eurobasket tournament with her national team and the new career in Belarus, Miss Rausberg tell us about herself and her plans for the future. Remember the name of what can be one of the promesing players in European women basketball.

Kati, you play international basketball for few years now, but for those who still dont know you, please tell us what kind a player are you and what are the strongest and weakest points in your game?
I would consider myself a smart player, my best abilities being shooting (3pt. and jump shot) and good court vision. I have grown tougher over the years and I like to go after loose balls, and play tough on defense. Latter is something I could always work on.

Before you moved to Belarus, you played at Eckerd college in the U.S. How much the experience there helped your game and influenced on it?
Before U.S. I had played the point guard position my whole life. In the states, however, coach used me as a 2 guard, and to be honest I enjoy that position much more as it gives me the opportunity to shoot the ball more often.

What was you best game in college?
Good question. I can tell my most memorable game is definitely a game against Nova Southeastern University my junior year when I hit a buzzer beater that won us the game. But the best one - I would have to go with actually 3 games we played against Rollins College in my junior year. They played in our conference and were nationally ranked. In those three games that year I went total of 22-17 from 3pt. line. It was great!

Your national team suffered from inconsistent. While you were a part of the national team who played in the 2011 Eurobasket, you were also a part from the team who lost all of their 8 matches for the 2013 Eurobasket qualifiers. Do you have any explanation for this?
I dont know if it is right to say we were inconsistent because the level of the play was so different both years. In the summer of 2011 we were still playing in the division B and against the teams on the same level with us. Last summer (2012) however, I think we were just not ready to face these big teams. I believe this past summer opened our eyes and showed what level we need to get on if we want to be in the competition with those big basketball countries. We have yet some work to do.

While in the national team you play usually as a point guard, at college you played mostly as a shooting guard. What is your favorite position to play and why?
Honesty I enjoy the shooting guard position more since there are more opportunities to shoot the ball.

You joined Belarus side Tsmoki Minsk and it will be your first year as a pro outside Estonia. Did you have a specific reason to choose to play in Belarus?
No specific reason why I chose Belarus. The club was interested in me and I thought it would be a great starting point for my career. I am happy with my decision.

What are your expectations from this up coming season in personal level and team level?
As for me personally I would like to stay healthy, have a good season so I could move on to a team that plays EuroCup. I would like to keep my 3 pt. shooting percentage above 40%. As for the team we want to win the Championship in Belarus, and also be in the top 3 in the Baltic League.

What are your dreams for the future? Playing in the WNBA is something realistic for you or that you will prefer to concentrate on playing in a top European club?
WNBA I dont think so. One of my dreams is definitely to play on an Euroleague team!!

Your mother was a basketball player and your brother is a basketball player. Is basketball was your favorite choice since you were a little girl because of your family?
I was never influenced by my family to choose basketball. I was always hanging in the gym, and going to the camps since my mom was a coach and I just loved it. Ever since I can remember I had the ball in my hands.

Who is your favorite player among the men and who is your favorite among the women?
Thats a tough one. One the womens side I love watching U.S. national team play, tough to choose a favorite - Candace Parker, Sue Bird, Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore.. They have soo many great players. As for the men, I was always Michael Jordan fan. But from the players playing now I would have to go with LeBron James.
