Dutch Prospects Abroad, Charlon Kloof - St. Bonaventure University - Oct 3, 2012

Charlon
Kloof
With Charlon Kloof (190-G-90) we open the interview serie "Dutch Prospects Abroad". Charlon Kloof is one of the most promising player in a startling generation of talent from a small country in Europe. Holland can become a reservoir of talent for the big leagues in Europe.
The talented point guard from St. Bonaventure University, a native of Paramaribo, Suriname, arrived in 2008 the Netherlands. Shortly after he had settled in the Netherlands, he played for the Dutch National U20 team and became European Champion with the Dutch U20 in the Division B in 2009 and reached the 15th spot on the European Championships U20 Division A in 2010. He moved in 2009 to Guilford Technical Community College in North Carolina, where he stayed one season and averaged 12.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game while shooting 53 percent from the floor in 24 games. In 2010 he chose for Canarias Basketball Academy, a prep school in Spain's Canary Islands, the season included stateside tournaments at Seton Hall and Rhode Island. He is now entering his second year with the "Bonnies", after a successful first season with a lot of highlights like winning the Atlantic 10 Tournament and reaching the second round of the NCAA Championship. Charlon Kloof catches up with Eurobasket.com to talk some hoops.

Why did you choose for the Bonnies and what has been the best part of the school?
I choose the Bonnies because they had a good coaching staff that was bringing back a good program. The program was making progress every year and that was enough for me to decide to come here. The fact that they needed a point guard and that they had a pro player on the team helped a lot also. The best part of playing for the Bonnies is the atmosphere at the games. Getting my name and home city called during starting lineups the best.

What area of your game has improved the most since attending St. Bonaventure University?
I would say that I improved the most with my floor game and my shot. I understand the game better and make better decisions.

Charlon, was it hard to transition to playing at the college level, after your time at the Spanish Canarias Basketball Academy?
It was a big adjustment for me from anywhere else I played. The basic adjustments were the speed of the game and the strength of the players. The other adjustments were knowing the system we play and what the coaches like and don't like.

At what point during last season did St. Bonaventure transition from being a good team to being a great one?
Last season's team played unselfish, because everyone knew what the team's goal was and we understood that it would take everyone giving everything to get there. Coach Schmidt has to get some of the credit, because he is the one that kept us focused on our goal and made sure we never forgot.

What makes last season team play in such an unselfish fashion? Does the credit go to your coach, Mark Schmidt?
I would say after the second game we played Duquesne University and won. After that game we were really one team and everyone knew and accepted their role.

What about Coach Schmidt? Whats he like personality-wise?
Coach Schmidt is a funny guy who likes to tell jokes and tell stories. He is the most patient coach I have ever met which was really crucial for my progress as a international player and as a new player to the system.

You have a reputation of being a very good on-the-ball defender. Is that something you take a lot of pride in?
My defense is my way of making sure that I get a spot on a team. Offense can be off one day, but defense never and I enjoy looking at someone's stats and see that he had 5 or 10 points less than his average or that he had to work twice as hard to get a basket. I don't like getting ready to play against someone and hearing that he's an all-american or really good and unstoppable. I always try to prove that I can stop or slow that player down.

What did you work on this summer in preparation for the upcoming season?
I worked on every part of my game this summer with emphases on my passing and shooting. I want to be able to find the open man and deliver the ball right on time and score if the team needs me to.

How would you describe where you were last year at this time and where you are now? What are the differences and how have you grown?
I am much more of a leader than I was last year. I am in better shape and better prepared for the season. I think all my improvements compared to last year are more me understanding what to expect and what I need to bring to the team for us to be successful. The first year was really getting a feel for the system, the coaching staff and the competition.

Summer 2013, can we expect to see you in action with the Dutch national team?
I honestly can't say if I will be available for this summer's national team. A couple of things need to be taken care of first before I make that decision. For now i'm leaving that decision open, because I really don't know yet.

How do you see the Bonnies season playing out?
I don't know how are season is going to play out, but I do know that we will work hard to reach success.

Thanks Charlon for the time doing this interview. Wish You and the Bonnies a successful season.
