Today I had the chance to interview Lucas Pavlounis. Lucas is currently a sophomore who has been attending Oratory for three years and last year played for the JV basketball team. During this interview, we are able to gain some insight on this year’s basketball tryouts and Lucas’s basketball career.


How long have you been playing basketball?
I’ve been playing basketball since I was in either the first or second grade.  


Was there a major influence that made you chose to play basketball?
Well, I think my parents just wanted to get me out of the house so they signed me up for the school team.  I ended up really liking it, and it’s been my main sport ever since.


Do you have any pregame routines? If so what are they?
It ultimately depends on how much time that I have before the game.  If I have a lot of time then I will just do a bunch of post moves underneath and get some extra stretching in.  


Are you looking to play college basketball?
I think it would be very nice if I could.  Of course, I want to but you never know what may or may not happen.  

What is one word that you would use to describe yourself?
I would probably just say aggressive.  That’s how I try to go into every game, and whether I have to focus on scoring, or rebounding, or defense I like to be aggressive and put my all into it.  

If you could play for any pro team, which team would it be?
Definitely the Knicks.  They’re my favorite team and playing in Madison Square Garden would be a surreal experience.  

Do you play for any teams outside of our school team? If so what teams?
Out of school I currently play for the Unity Legends.  

What was the format of the tryouts this year?
We started out with stretching, got into some drills and conditioning, scrimmaged against each other, and then did some kind of running at the end.  

What is your favorite drill that you did during tryouts?
Just getting to scrimmage and play with all the guys was definitely the best part.  

What was the hardest part of tryouts this year?
Well, of course, the running is going to be hard, but I have to say that everyone did really well this year so they made the scrimmaging very challenging as well.
