Starting Five With Demetrius Henry
Oct. 30, 2013
COLUMBIA, S.C. - South Carolina freshman forward Demetrius Henry sat down with GamecocksOnline.com recently for our web series in conjunction with Spurs and Feathers, "Starting Five With Demetrius Henry." The series will highlight a different member of the Gamecock men's basketball team with each edition. A native of Florida, Henry spoke on his abilities on both the offensive and defensive ends of the court, and why he models his game after one of the top big men in the NBA.
Q: Having played your high school basketball in South Florida, what made you decide to sign with the Gamecocks?
Q: You have noted that Kevin Garnett is your favorite player and you wear 21 for that reason. Is that who you model your game after the most?
Q: You obviously bring size to the post, but how do you see yourself as a basketball player? What can Gamecock fans expect to see from you on the court?
Q: You averaged 18 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks per game last year for Faith Baptist Christian. Looks like you value every part of the game. Do you feel you are an asset to the team both offensively and defensively?
Q: What aspect of your game are you working on the most as you prepare for your freshman season to get underway?
A: Definitely my strength, that is number one. The SEC is a physical league and college basketball is physical, so that is what I have been working on the most.
