Q: How do you find living in Mongolia different than compared to living in the states?

A: I would say living in Mongolia is different from the states mainly because the culture and getting adjusted to an environment I've never been in before. There's such a huge language barrier and no one really speaks English so I've learned to get used to the people and also the food is a big part of getting adjusted to a new country. There's a lot to get used to and I guess I'm more familiar with what goes on on a daily basis in the states.

Q: Whats the difference with playing basketball in the US and in the current league you're in (MNBA)?

A: The difference between this league and the league in the US is that the US teams are more developed and the players are definitely more skilled. Playing in the MNBA now, I've noticed the way the teams play and out here they are a little more psychical than the other leagues I've played in in the U.S.But this league is coming along though and developing.

Q: How is your team performing so far this season?

A: Right now we are ending the second round and have been doing pretty decent. We had a couple games where we weren't playing together as team, but the chemistry is starting to build which ultimately helps us play better as a team. We are actually on a two game winning streak, looking to gain our third tonight before all star break.
