Josh McRoberts spurned the NBA Draft to make another go round with college basketball's most popular team.  Despite being 6-10, McRoberts is a rarity because he can shoot from distance and pass like a guard.  After helping Duke make another NCAA Tournament run, McRoberts will probably be listening to David Stern call out his name in June.

 

He took some time out of his busy schedule to answer a few quick questions.

 

CHN: What have you been working on over the summer to improve your game? Do you feel like you've made progress?

Josh McRoberts (JM): Strength and Shooting.  I feel like I’ve made good progress in both areas.

 

CHN: How do you deal with the pressure of being on a team with realistic hopes of reaching the Final Four?

JM: Focus on one practice and game at a time and try to improve everyday individually and as a team.

 

CHN: Which of your teammates deserves more respect for their game and work ethic?

JM: Lance Thomas

 

CHN: Why do so many kids want to want to come play for Coach K?

JM: Because he’s proven to be the best.

 

CHN: What's the most fun part of being a college basketball player?

JM: The games.

  

CHN: Do you follow the NBA much?

JM: I don’t follow it very closely.  But my favorite player to watch is Lebron James.

 

CHN: If you want to join Lebron in the league, what do you need to do to take your game to the next level?

JM: Continue to improve in every area of the game.

 

CHN: Thanks for your time Josh.

JM: No problem guys.
