Dutch Prospects Abroad, Thomas van der Mars - University of Portland - Nov 6, 2012

Thomas van
der Mars
We talked some hoops with Dutch prospect Thomas van der Mars (208-C-90), with whom we continue our interview-serie Dutch Prospects Abroad.
Center Thomas van der Mars had an nice freshman year with the Pilots, playing 31 games and averaging 7.7ppg, 5.4rpg, FGP: 53.7%, FT: 62.7%. At 6'11 with solid length and a 225-pound frame, Van der Mars is big enough to play either post position at the next level. While he is not overly quick or explosive, he is a solid and coordinated athlete with average mobility given his size.

Thomas just finished a exhibition game with the Pilots against reigning NAIA national champion Concordia-Irvine and played a solid game with 9 points, 5 rebounds and 2 blocks in 21 minutes. The Pilots defeated Concordia-Irvine with 79-66.

Where did basketball begin for you?
I started playing basketball at age 9 in my hometown; Gouda, the Netherlands. I had played some soccer up until that point, but after trying out basketball I was completely sold. The fact that my dad had played some basketball in the past made it all the more special to me.

What made you decide to leave Holland to play ball at Canarias Basketball Academy in Gran Canaria, Spain?
I had always dreamt of playing at the collegiate level in the USA. However, it became obvious that I did not have access to the required resources and guidance in order to make the jump to that level. Rob Orellana and the Canarias Basketball Academy (CBA) promised to provide those resources and guidance. Rob delivered on his promises and for that I am very thankful.

You chose to play for University of Portland, why?
The coaching staff and the style of play. The coaches have a lot of experience in developing quality post players and the style of play definitely suits me.

What do you consider to be the strongest and the weakest point of your game
I feel like my strongest point is my back to the basket play. Probably my weakest point and what I am currently working on is becoming more versatile.

Thomas, how are you preparing for the upcoming season?
I spent the summer lifting weights and further developing my skills. We just put in the offense and defense a couple of weeks ago. Right now, we are working on playing as good as possible collectively.

What are your initial thoughts going into next season?
We had a rough season last year. However, we have improved and we are ready to surprise some people.

Do you have any parting words of advice or encouragement for young upcoming players in Holland looking to better their game?
Stay Humble, Stay Hungry.

Thanks Thomas for the time doing this interview. Wish You and the Pilots a successful season.
