Preseason interview with Head coach Jim Meil - Sep 12, 2012

Jim Meil
With Stepco BS Weert head coach Jim Meil , we continue this month long preseason Q&A Series. Jim Meil begins his second season as head coach of Stepco BS Weert.
In his first season with Stepco BS Weert, Meil guided the team to a 5-23 record and led them to the FinalFour of the Dutch Cup.

Describe what your first season in Holland has been like for you.
My first season in Holland had very different experiences. I very much enjoyed being a Head Coach and implementing a system of play. We did not win as much as hoped for and that was a disappointment. I also learned that all the locker rooms do not have a board to write things on to show the team......

How did the season compare to the expectations you had when you entered the season?
The season was a disappointment based upon my initial thoughts. Certainly we thought would be much more successful than the final record showed. We did have some injuries to some key players which did not help. However that is not an excuse because every team deals with adversity during the course of a season. Our play was much too inconsistent and that made winning difficult. Additionally we got off to a slow start and never recovered.

What did you learn from the players that season?
I started coaching in 1982 and each year I have learned certain things from the players. Last year's group helped me with the transition to European Basketball. They also added to my knowledge of how different players deal with success and adversity.

How did you grow as a coach during the season?
As the season went along I think I adapted to the style of play and the differences between the European game and the American game. Learning how to keep the players in rhythm individually and as a team with the many breaks we had in last year's schedule was a challenge for me. I think I am better prepared for that this season.

Jim, what has changed for you since last season?
Each year as a coach you do change a bit. You must stay true to who you are while at the same time recognizing what things must be emphasized with your current team and players. For me I realized despite that fact you are dealing with mostly older players (as compared to college age players from my previous years) you can not take anything for granted.

Lets start with some of the incoming players. Bryquis Perine , was one of your first signed players. What do you see in him?
Bryquis, or Bre as he goes by, is a player with a multi dimensional game. He can score in many different ways. He can create his own shot as well as help others get shots. Also he has the ability to play both the point and 2 guard positions with his versatility. I like his competitiveness and his desire to win. He will also be a leader for us.

What type of role do you envision for Antwan Carter?
Antwan has an excellent ability to score the ball. He was prepared well by his coaches at Longwood. He will play both forward and center positions for us and we expect him to score and rebound. He has also been an excellent defender who has an good ability to block shots. As people watch his game they will see that he plays bigger than his size. It will take him a period of time to adjust to the play in Holland but he is a hard worker and this will help his transition.

What have you seen from some of the Dutch players so far? What strides have they made?
Kenneth van Kempen and Sjors Besseling are excellent professionals with very team oriented skills and attitudes. Both came to the first practice in excellent shape. They both bring some necessary consistency to our team. Our remaining Dutch players are young players with good potential. Joost Padberg has the skills to be an excellent player. He worked hard this summer and now it is time for him to take the next step and increase his game productivity. San de Haas played at Rotterdam last season and has a good ability to shoot the ball. Steffan Mulder is coming of a knee injury. Last year in practice he showed a very aggressive and competitive nature which helps his play. Lastly Rik Renkema has an ability to play hard and rebound well. These younger players must develop quickly to add the necessary depth to our group.

How do you see the lineup shaking out to start the season?
The line-up is never set in stone as the daily competition can change things. It is a big plus for us to have Rahmon Fletcher back at the point guard position for the entire year. Last season he arrived at mid-season when Demario Anderson suffered a season ending injury. He brings great stability to our team. His summer was very productive and I expect that to be reflected in his play. For us we must integrate our young players with the veterans to give us the necessary flexibility that I am looking for.

What are you most looking forward to the upcoming season?
I am very pleased that the league will have 10 teams. This will allow the league competition to have a more smooth flow to the schedule with less breaks. As with any professional league each night is a battle and we must come ready for every game. Our veterans must take the lead in this area and set the tone for our younger players. It should be a very exciting year.

Thanks Jim for the time doing this interview. Wish You and the team a successful season.
