Lynch Thriving in Irish Premier League - Nov 13, 2013

Peter Lynch

After several weeks in the Irish Premier League, Peter Lynch (198-F, college: Middlebury) is making a positive impact. The 6'6 forward is averaging 19.5 points and 11.4 rebounds for DCU St.Vincents Dublin, which lead his team and rank sixth and fifth in the League, respectively. The first-year professional has continued the consistent shooting that typified his career at Middlebury College. He is shooting 64% from two-point range and 80% from the free throw line, while also having converted one of his two three-point attempts. The big man has been taking care of the ball as well, committing less than one turnover in 31 minutes of action per game. With averages of 1.4 steals and one block (eighth in the League), Peter is proving to be a strong defensive presence for the Saints. We touched base with Peter this week to see how he is settling into his new surroundings.

How are you finding life in Ireland?

I am loving it here. Dublin reminds me more of home than I expected. It's really interesting that everywhere I go people can immediately recognize I'm American just by hearing me speak one sentence. In the beginning, there were the simple adjustments that happen any time you move to a new place but now that the season is in full gear, I feel completely settled here.

How is basketball going?

So far, basketball is going really well. The guys on the team are all great and I love playing for Coach Donnelly. Training is a very similar style to the United States and I think Coach gets the most out of his players every training session. Dermot knew from the beginning that DCU would be the best fit for me because of the skill level that was already in place on the team and he could not have been more right. I genuinely feel that playing for them is the best situation I could be in.

What are the team's hopes and your individual goals for the rest of the season?

As a team, we feel like we have been progressing each week of training and games. Our goal is to go out there every week and bring our A-game. We want to beat every team we go up against and Coach has done a good job instilling in us that there is no reason we can't do that every week. In the games we have lost so far, I feel like there are still a number of positives that can be taken away. We know that its all about putting everything together week in and week out. I know this may be a very generic answer, but I honestly want to try to do whatever I can to have as many Ws on the board as possible by the end of the season. We have a lot of guys who can put the ball in the hoop and I think we are most successful when we give the ball to the hot hand and let them carry us. I know our balance is what will ultimately help us win games. As a result, I never go into a game aiming to do anything too specific because the game will always dictate itself.

What has been hard for you as a first-year professional?

The most difficult part I feel is the consistency throughout the league. There are some very good Irish and European players and that means I know I'm going to have to battle for every basket and every rebound, even if I'm not matched up with another American on a certain night.

How have you been able to produce such consistent numbers (e.g. points, rebounds, FG%)?

I think its just about knowing the appropriate time to attack and when it's best to make the extra pass. I try not to force shots and know that if I have the ball and my teammate is open, it is my job not to force a contested or double-teamed shot but to get him the ball in the best position to score.

How has Players 1st helped you pursue a professional basketball career?

Players 1st was able to identify the situation they believed would best accommodate me as a player and I can honestly say I couldn't be happier with where they placed me. Players 1st has one interest in mind - putting the athlete where they can succeed. From the start, Dermot and his colleagues used their valuable connections and insight to help guide me while also listening to my opinions as a player. Players 1st is well represented throughout the basketball world and worked endlessly to help me sign a contract where they knew I would be a great fit. Any player would be lucky to have Players 1st on their side.

Watch out for Peter and his teammates this Saturday as the Saints tackle Templeogue in the National Cup. DCU won the first leg 84-48.
