Recruiting
Virginia

Posted On: 11/20/18 5:00 AM

The addition of Carter Svenson will give Coach Corey Stitzel two reliable options at the point guard position. Don’t be surprised to see Stone Bridge come out with a two-point guard lineup featuring Svenson at the 1 and Evan Buckley at the 2. Buckley was out during their recent scrimmage, so we didn’t get to see this, but the team still managed to execute at a high level. Svenson discussed his recruitment among other topics in the interview below. 

PH: What do you think is the most improved aspect of your game?

CS: “I think I’ve gotten a lot better at shooting the ball, and becoming a better scorer. In the past I’ve kind of been a facilitator. Obviously I’ve still continued to be a facilitator, but I’ve gotten a lot better at shooting and attacking the basket as well.”

PH: How are your grades?

CS: “Good. I have a 3.9 and I’m taking a couple of AP’s.”

PH: Who is currently recruiting you?

CS: “I’ve heard from Hood, CNU, and Carnegie Mellon.”

PH: What type of feedback do you receive from college coaches?

CS: “Floor general stuff. Lead the team, but I gotta get stronger and improve my scoring.”

PH: What is your role going to be this season?

CS: “To continue to lead the team. Score a little more, especially when Evan (Buckley) comes back.”

PH: What are your goals?

CS: “I want to take my team to as far as we can get. Hopefully a state title. That’s really all I care about; just winning.

PH: What will need to happen in order for you to reach your goal?

CS: “We’ve gotta get more physical. Tighten up on the defensive side of the ball. On offense we can hit shots and execute. We just gotta get physical, rebound, and play defense.”
