Johnson
Manuel Johnson (201-F-83, agency: Court Side, college: Tex.A&M-Comm.), the first US import who joined Teodo Tivat before the beginning of the season talks for eurobasket.com about his past at Texas A&M C.C. and expectations from the first season in Montenegro. Johnson who is known as 'Scooby' and who got many fans in Tivat had a great debut in domestic league a week ago against Ibar Rozaje (18 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assits, 2 blocks and 2 steals in just 19 minutes on the court).

Hello Scooby, you are for the first time in Montenegro. How do you like the country and Tivat, your new basketball destination?

ts nice here I cant complain at all.

What do you think about Teodo, the coach Slobodan Savovic , and people around the club?

Teodo is a good team. We have players that can score and defend at each position and we also have depth. We are a good solid team but with that being said we still have to go out and play. Coach Boban has a very high basketball I.Q and is a good coach. The people around the club are great people I get along with all the people around the club its like a family atmosphere here.

You had a quadriceps injury at the beginning of the season which forced you to miss the opening Cup game against Zeta 2011 and league game against Centar in Bijelo Polje but you made a perfect debut in Tivat last weekend. Your team won 98:86 and you had a good game: 18pts, 3rbs, 2 assists, 2 blocks and 2 steals in just 19 minutes on the court. What was the feeling to make such a great debut in front of Teodo's fans that made a noisy atmosphere in Zupa hall?

Yes..It was a good feeling. It was our first officiall home game of the regular season but also my first officiall game but it was more important to me that we get the win but the fans was Amazon, the atmosphere was great. Hopefully we can keep having that atmosphere like we had last Saturday night.

For the rivals Brandon Roberson (180-PG, college: Missouri Baptist) had a great game too but he was unable to help Ibar win the game. Brandon is your former teammate from Texas A&M C.C. It was fun to play against him after so many years?

He is a all around good player and he also had a solid game. Yeah it was fun playing against him after so many years it will be times he scored off a nice move and he come back and just look at me and I also did the same but it was all around a good game I cant wait until we meet again on the court.

With Texas A&M C.C. you had some extraordinary achievements. Could you tell us more about that?

We had a very good team. We won the Southland Conference regular title and also the Southland Conference Tournament. We went to the NCAA Tournament but we lost in the first round. We had a 15 Man roster and 5 of us went on to play basketball in Europe Pro.

After college days were over you moved to Portugal and played three years for Academica de Coimbra. In your rookie year you averaged a double-double (16.4ppg,10.0rpg) and were selected as Eurobasket.com All-Portuguese League Forward of the Year and played in Portuguese All- Star game in your rookie year. How hard it was to get used to European game style and how competitive is Portugal compared to the League in Montenegro?

Yes I dont really see the difference in style of play just some rules like goaltending and the travelling calls but other than that its pretty much the same to me.I think both leagues are competitive.

This is your first year in Montenegro and you have been here for quite a long time to be able to estimate the potential of your current team. Do you think you will be competitive in both Balkan league and domestic championship?

Like I said awhile ago we have a nice solid roster and we have depth at each position and we also have a nice size team.. Yes I know we will be very competitive in both the Balkan League and also in the Domestic Championship.

Next week you will have a historical debut in Balkan League against Serbian side OKK Beograd. Are you ready for that challenge?

I am more than ready. I had a horrible game this past Saturday but we went on the road and took a tough Win so Im happy with the W but not with myself Its also home game so with the atmosphere at home it should be just exciting. We as a team are also ready for the Challenge!

For the end, what would you like to say to the fans in Tivat? Is there a message for them?

KEEP COMING OUT AND SUPPORT TEODO AND KEEP MAKING THE ATMOSPHERE LOUD AND NOISY AND BUCKLE YOUR SEATBELT CAUSE ITS GOING TO BE A LONG BUMBY SEASON BABY!

Thank you Scooby. Hope you will have some nice time in Montenegro this year.

THANK YOU
