Tai Wesley "Holland is an easy place to live" - Mar 7, 2012

Tai Wesley
I had a chance to talk to Tai Wesley (200-F-86, college: Utah St.) of EiffelTowers Den Bosch. We talked about his stay in Holland.
In four years on the Utah State basketball team, graduate Tai Wesley finished his Aggies career as the best player in the WAC conference.
After graduating, Wesley showed an ability to finish around the basket in his first season of professional basketball for EiffelTowers Den Bosch in the Dutch Basketball League.
Wesley has had several big performances and considered as one of the best players in the league.
One thing is looking certain, that at 25 years of age, Tai Wesley has a nice future ahead of him in International level of basketball for many years to come.
Playing 28.3 minutes per game in 21 DBL contests, the 6-foot-7 forward was averaging 15.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.0 blocks. He shot 62.6 percent from the floor, 50.0 percent on three-pointers and 55.7 percent from the foul line.

After 4 years of NCAA basketball with the Aggies you turned pro last summer. Was that something you always planned to do? And how did you end up in Holland?
Yes it was always my dream to become a professional basketball player, and it's a great to be able to actually achieve it. I ended up in holland after my agent came to me with an offer and a phone call from coach korner. Everything sounded like a good fit so I signed the deal and was holland-bound.

You had great success at Utah State for four years. What are your favorite memories from Utah State?
My favorite memories at Utah state were the times I was able to win the WAC tournament with my teammates and advance to the big dance. Also I'll never forget the home court advantage I enjoyed there.

It isnt easy to adapt to a new country, a new city or a new home. How did you adjust?
Well it actually hasn't been too hard, because holland is an easy place to live, the food is good and everyone speaks English.

Do you enjoy living in Den Bosch?
I do like Den Bosch, it's a nice place to live and it has a rich basketball tradition.

What is different about playing basketball in Europe compared to playing basketball in the States?
The biggest difference for me would have to be how fast the game is played. Here in Europe the game is played so much faster.

How would you rank the quality of the Dutch league?
The Dutch league has really surprised me in the strength of it's teams.

Tai, tell me about one or two of the challenges that came along, things you felt you really had to work on.
The biggest challenge that I've faced is the rule difference in traveling. Here you can't do the open step which is hard to adjust to.

Is there a skill or a special aspect to your game that you think people haven't seen yet, or aren't aware of? You rebound, defend, do lots of things, but is there an underrated aspect to your game?
I think that I haven't really been able to show my shooting ability that much, especially from the 3 point line.

What is your role as a starting center of the EiffelTowers?
I feel like my role is to be a consistent scorer and rebounder as well as play solid defense.

What did you learn from a veteran as Dutch center Peter van Paassen?
I've learned a lot from Peter, he has so much knowledge of the game so I've tried to imitate what he does. The biggest thing I've learned from him is to be patient in the post.

With a convincing win over Lasaulec Aris last saturday, do you feel the team is now back where they should be?
I think that we're are taking the right steps to getting back to our winning ways.

What's been the best moment of the EiffelTowers' season so far?
Well I think the best is yet to come, but I did enjoy the winning streak we had.

How do you see EiffelTowers Den Bosch season playing out?
I know how I'd like the season to play out....I'd like it to end with a championship trophy back in Den Bosch.

Tai, Thanks for your time doing this interview and wish you and your team a lot of success at the Playoffs.

30-year old center Nick Oudendag (210-C-87) put on an amazing game in the last round for Den Bosch and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 2.

There were only 2 rounds played so far and it's still very beginning of the Regular Season in Eredivisie.

Groningen outrebounded Amsterdam 43-30 including 29 on the defensive glass. The form...   [read more]
