Interview with Aaron Mitchell, the point guard of Centar Bijelo Polje and newcomer in Erste Basketball League - Oct 6, 2012

Aaron
Mitchell
Aaron Mitchell (187-G, college: Longwood), US point guard who has recently joined the newly promoted Centar from Bijelo Polje answered on eurobasket.com's questions about his goals and first overseas experience in Bijelo Polje. Take a look...

Hello Aaron, tell us more about your first steps in the basketball world? Have you always dreams to be a professional basketball player?

Yes that has been one of my lifetime goals to become a professional player since a child.

You are from Virginia, a state in the US not well known for its basketball, but mostly known for its football. Do you feel that basketball players from Virginia are somehow overlooked?

In some way you can say we are but when you really look at we have a lot of players playing professional basketball. I have many friends that I played with or grew up playing professional like Jay Threatt (180-G-89, college: Delaware St.), Brandon Rozzell (187-G-89, college: VCU), Tyrese Rice (185-PG-87, agency: Priority Sports, college: Boston Coll.) to just name a few. But I think we are starting to get recognize more now.

You played college basketball at Longwood (NCAA1). Was there any specific reason to choose Longwood?

Yes there was I had went to FL for JUCO basketball my 1st two years. So my family really couldnt see me play. So being back home was a plus. Also Longwood really showed they wanted me on my visit.

After a solid college career ( Senior season stats: 13.4ppg, 5.8rpg, 3.8apg and 1.0spg ) you appeared in a Pro Camp in Las Vegas but you did not get a deal to go abroad last season. How did you feel at that moment? You felt you needed to work more on your game and keep imporoving or you were just disappointed?

I was really disappointed but that motivated me to really work hard and keep working towards getting overseas! Everybody has there own path of getting overseas mine just took a little longer.

Last season you played for Richmond Elite (ABA), a team which had many NCAA 1 and 2 players on its roster and was coached by George Lancaster who is a coaching legend in Virginia. Did this experience help you get mentally and physically stronger and adjust to the requirements of pro basketball?

ABA was a big help like it got me adjusted to the speed and physical play of pro ball. Learning from Coach Lancaster was great like he really teaches you the fundamentals demands respect from his players. He we had a great season we finished #11 in the nation.

In September you joined Centar Bijelo Polje, the newcomer in Division I (Montenegro). Before you left the States, did you have any idea about the level of basketball in this small Mediteranian country or you just wanted to play and did not care much about other things?

No I didn't have any clue about the talent level here. I just wanted to get my foot in the door so I could have chance at a pro career overseas!

In Centar you will have an important role as starting point guard. Could you tell now the fans what they can expect from you this year?

Expect for me to come here and play my hardest and do everything possible to help the team win games. It's all about getting wins for the team and coach!

You will not be the only American in the team as there is already Rickey Young (204-F/C-90, college: W.Virginia Tech), who played last year in Montenegro and got important experience. Is Rickey there for you to help you when the help is needed?

Yes, Rickey has made the transition a lot smother for me here. He some I can ask questions about certain things on the court that will help. Not only has he been a big help on the court but off the court too. I would probably still be lost out here now haha.

What are your first impressions about the town and the club? How far can go this team?

The town is very friendly and everybody knows each other like one big family here. The people have been nothing but friendly to me. We are young group of guys so we can go as far as our energy on defense takes us. It's start with the defense. We have to beat teams with our quickness and defense.

Thank you Aaron for this interview. Eurobasket.com will keep following your games and the games of your team. Good luck in the new season!

Thank you for taking your time to interview me.

Erste Basketball League Round 19: Big win for Teodo against Sutjeska, Danilovgrad looses by 1 at home and the battle to avoid relegation intensifies - 19 hours ago
The Round 20 was very interesting and brought to us few important clashes. Teodo hosted Sutjeska in Tivat and did not fail to meet expectations (73-70). In a tied game the home team played better and despite the effort made by Sutjeska in last quarter to tie the score and win the game it did not happen. Teodo secured its position on the top and now will have to defend it until the end of regular season. Milos Djurisic (194-G-88) (20 points) and Milos Popovic (197-PF-98) (18 points, 10 reb...   [read more]
