Dutch Prospects Abroad, Kevin Bleeker - Canisius College - Oct 20, 2012

Kevin
Bleeker
With Canisius College sophomore Kevin Bleeker (208-C-93), we continuing our interview-serie "Dutch Prospect Abroad". At the age of 18, Kevin moved to Buffalo, New York to play and study at the Canisius College. In his freshman year, he played 15 minutes per game and averaged 2.7 points and 2.8 rebounds per game for the Golden Griffins.
We talked to the 610, 225-pound Dutch native about his stay at Canisius College, about taking the next step in his college career and his expectations about the upcoming season.

Tell me about your early basketball experiences. What prodded you into playing basketball?
I started playing basketball at a young age. My parents were playing in leagues and I would go to the gym with them and shoot around and play at halftime. I started playing on a team when I was 10 years old. I changed club teams when I was 14 and then I started playing and working on my game everyday. I started playing for ALKMAAR Guardians and then moved to BV Noordkop.

What was the first thing you did when you arrived in America?
I came here with my family and we spent some time at Crystal Beach (located in Fort Erie, Ontario Canada, right across the bridge from Buffalo) and we had a family vacation. Then my parents dropped me off at school before they went home. I had been to the U.S. four times before coming to school here, so I knew what it was like.

Was there let's say, a culture shock?
I wouldn't say culture shock, because I have been here before, but being away from my family and friends in Holland made it much different. I was now living on my own and going to school in another country by myself.

What was the most difficult thing to get used to?
The hardest thing to get used to was the speed and tempo of the college basketball here. The players are so much bigger, stronger and faster than they are in Holland, or anywhere in Europe for that matter.

Kevin, is there anything you've missed by being away from home?
I miss spending time with my brother (Steve, who is 15 and plays basketball for BV Noordkop) and I miss not being able to see him play. And it is hard that I can't just hang out with my family and friends.

Was it hard to transition to playing at the college level?
Yes, it was a tough change. The guys are just bigger and stronger. The pace of the game is so much faster too. It took me some time to get used to that, but I feel much better about those things now.

What's the difference between you and a American-born player?
Before I came here to Canisius, I never lifted weights. The guys were all stronger than me, because they grew up working out with weights. I feel like this is a big thing, not just for me, but for all European players who come to the U.S. to play. European players seem like they are more skilled, while the American-born guys are physcially stronger and much more athletic.

How has Coach Jim Baron helped you improve during your first year at Canisius College?
Coach Baron is great to work with. He pushes me in everything I do. He understands the European game - he coached Peter Van Paassen when he was the coach at St. Bonaventure. I know coach Baron can help me become a better player.

What did you try to improve over the summer to prepare for the upcoming MAAC season?
I lifted a lot of weights and got much stronger. We did a lot of running too to get in better shape. I worked on getting lower and playing with a better base on offense and defense and I really worked on being quicker on my feet. I also took a lot of shots and really worked on improving my shooting.

The 2012-13 season begins Nov. 02. When does practice begin and what are your thoughts on the team so far?
The NCAA changed the rules, so we have been working out as a team since Sept. 15, but the real practice season started Oct. 12. I think we're off to a pretty good start and we are all working real hard. We have a lot to prove, we only won five games last year. We have a whole new coaching staff and a bunch of new players, so we are working at coming together as a group. I think with our talent and our hard work, we can make a run at winning the MAAC. This is a really good league and there's a lot of good teams. I can't wait until the regular-season starts.

Thanks Kevin for the time doing this interview. Wish You and the Golden Griffins a successful season.
