BBP: Plymouth Raiders: 'I can bring class and integrity'

Last season the Plymouth Raiders managed a play-off semi-final spot despite finishing sixth on the BBL ladder and will be hoping to be as competitive in the 2013/14 season.

The semi-final stage was also where the teams BBL Cup dreams ended with a nine point defeat to Newcastle Eagles.

Garrius Holloman is a new addition to the squad who comes from America to compete and is hopeful of a trophy.

He said: "I don't have any personal goals other to be a good team mate both on and off the court and help the club grow and help them win a championship."

"I feel like I am a hard worker and I want to help whatever the team needs, I've heard it's a great surrounding and great community, i'm just looking forward to having a first-hand experience of the area."

"I love to play the game of basketball and I'm not picky on what leagues to play in, this opportunity came and I took it."

Holloman can play on as a wing or guard and is excited to begin his journey with his new teammates in Plymouth.

He continued: "I'm excited, I've been excited since I got the call and I'm excited today, just can't wait to get down there and play."

"I think my experience that I had in New Zealand will help me feel comfortable in scenery that I'm not used to, so I feel like I will be able to adjust quickly."

"I take pride in the organisation that chose me, I'm looking forward to helping where coach will have me."

"I'm just a normal guy who loves to play basketball."

It means he faces Arsenal defender Rob Holding in the final.
Courtois discussed his passion for the NBA after the game: “I don’t really have a team. I know a few players at the Lakers and at the Knicks, so I like to follow the players I really know well. I’m very excited to see Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers in London for the NBA London Game 2018 for example, I think it will be a great game and hopefully they will win as well.”
Fosu-Mensah then concluded by sharing his excitement for the NBA London Game 2018, “I’ve always wanted to see an NBA game and the London Game is going to be my first one ever, so I’m really excited to go. It’s going to be a grea…
