Live from Washington DC, CHN's Jon Teitel is covering the NCAA Tournament pod featuring Xavier vs Georgia and Baylor vs Purdue. He'll be checking in periodically with player interviews & news updates from the Verizon Center (left).
This morning, he starts things off with a quick interview from Georgia reserve Troy Brewer:
Q: What is your day like today?
A: We got up early, had some practice, and will take a tour of DC later today. I am from Maryland, so this a great chance for me to come home and see my friends and family.
Q: How exciting was last weekend?
A: The SEC Tournament was an unforgettable experience. We were in the locker room when the tornado hit, so we did not know what happened. We were concerned about playing 2 games in a single day, but we were all focused, and we had nothing to lose.
Q: What do you know about Xavier?
A: They are a very talented team, and we are concerned about stopping their point guard Drew Lavender.
Q: What effect did all the suspensions this year have on your team?
A: I think it actually made us stronger, as it caused many of us to have to fill important roles on the team. Everything happens for a reason, and here we are in the NCAA Tournament.
Q: What is Coach Felton like?
A: He is a great motivator, and really brings out the best in a player.
