Kareem's the Dream for Eagles - Aug 13, 2012

Kareem
Maddox
The Newcastle Eagles have swooped to sign 6'8" PF Kareem Maddox (202-F/C-89, college: Princeton) for the 20012/13 BBL campaign as they prepare to defend all four domestic titles they won last season.

Maddox, a graduate of Ivy League Princeton University, impressed the Newcastle coaching staff at the Basketball Days Tournament in Zwolle, Holland during the Christmas and New Year holiday putting himself on the radar for the future with his high-energy, athletic performances.

With Andy Thomson leaving for France and La Rochelle there was a gap to fill and Head Coach Fabulous Flournoy and Assistant Dave Forrester felt the former Zwolle forward was just the man to step in to Thomson's shoes and fill the gap.

Kareem himself cant wait to get started and gave an exclusive interview to Eurobasket.

"I'm really excited to get out to Newcastle. I've heard a lot of great things about the city and the people, and I played against Newcastle when I was at Zwolle last year, so I know the team is run well."

"I liked Newcastle because of the success that they have had, and after speaking to Fab over the phone I felt comfortable knowing that I would be heading into a good situation."

"I have family outside of London, which was another factor that played into my decision. My mother is half British, so I had a feeling that I would make my way to the UK at some point."

How do you feel signing for such a successful franchise where the levels of expectation are so great?

"Newcastle's success is both daunting and impressive. There are definitely going to be some high expectations in the upcoming year, but that means the target will be on our back so to speak but the pressure to prepare and perform should be a good thing."

What do you think you can bring to The Eagles with your playing style?

"I always try to bring defensive intensity and energy, and provide a spark however I can. My goals are of course to continue to success that Newcastle has had, and to improve as a player as much as possible. I know that Newcastle prides itself on defence as well, which is great for me because I know that I can provide in that area."

Last season was your first as a Professional, how did you get on in Zwolle and how do you think Holland will compare with The BBL in England?

"I had a great experience in Holland last year, although I got hurt midway through the year."

"The BBL has more teams, which is an aspect I like a lot. I can't say how the experiences will compare, but it's a new year with new people so I'm excited for it. I was impressed with Newcastle at Basketball Days, we definitely left with the impression that it was a great organization with good teammates that enjoyed playing together."

"Playing a team like that is always fun."

You had a great career at Princeton and were All-Ivy League 1st Team as well as Defensive Player of the Year in your senior year. What was your college experience like?

"Princeton was great to attend. I chose to go there because of the rich basketball tradition, along with the academics. At first it was tough because we didn't do very well my freshman year basketball-wise, and the school work was non-stop."

"After I got adjusted and learned some crucial time management habits it got a lot easier. We improved every year, and the overall experience got much better. The four years flew by but I wouldn't change anything about them."

"The basketball was intense. There are only 8 teams in the Ivy League, and the winner of the league goes to the NCAA tournament. Each game within our conference was a major battle because everyone knows everyone else really well, so our championship senior year was unbelievably gratifying after all of the work we had put in."

"Princeton was challenging on all fronts but like I said I wouldn't change anything about the experience."

With the signing of Damon Huffman (186-G-85) as well as Maddox The Eagles now have two Ivy League Graduates in their midst so its fair to say they should have a smart team next season on and off court.

Maddox certainly seems to have the hunger, desire and attitude to do well in England and certainly doesnt appear afraid of hard work. Bringing a defensive specialist in to a roster and team that prides itself on those principles seems a good move.

Time will tell but it certainly looks like and exciting and promising signing for The Eagles.
