VBTN beat us to it... Villanova Commit, Maalik Wayns, (along with Villanova Recruiting target, Dominic Cheek) is now in Formosa, Argentina competing in the FIBA Americas U18 Championship. USAbasketball.com has a quick interview with Maalik:
- What are the changes the team has gone through over the last week and a half?
It’s real different. We’re playing an offense and I’ve never really played a set offense with back screens and stuff like that. I’m getting used to that now, but that’s different for me.
- Was your first practice a little bit of a culture shock for you?
Oh yeah, the college coaching, that’s all new to me. We have to get used to it to get ready for college.
- How’s the team chemistry?
I think we’re all coming together really well. We hang together at the hotel, go out to eat together, we’re all bonding pretty good.
- Have you ever been overseas?
No, it’s my first time.
- Do you know anything about Argentina?
No, not at all.
- Are you looking forward to it?
Yes, a lot. I want to see how they live over there. Is it nice, is it like us, is it different? I just want to see how it is.
