DraftExpress: Whatd you think of your performance in todays scrimmage?
Duke Crews: I think I played fairly well. I rebounded well, held my position on the floor well. So far Im just looking forward to the game tomorrow.
DX: What part of your game do you think you need to work on the most?
DC: Everything. Theres room for improvement in every part of your game. Im not going to pinpoint one thing in my game. I just need to work on everything as a whole.
DX: What led to you choosing to attend Tennessee to play for coach Bruce Pearl?
DC: I believe in him as a coach. For me, he was the right fit for me: the academic program, its a great recruiting class, and on top of that, I wanted to choose a university that I could leave a mark on. You know, be known as a guy that helped get the university to a certain level, as far as nationally, and maintain that. At the end of my career, I want people to say when you think about the University of Tennessee, you think about Duke Crews, one of the great players to play there.
DX: What role do you expect to play next year?
DC: Im looking to go in and work hard. And you know, no ones promised anything going into college. You could be the number one player in the country or the last player on the bench. Im just going to go in and work hard, earning my time, and then when I get my time, being productive on the court, at both ends of the floor.
DX: Do you project yourself at a certain position on the floor, between SF or PF?
DC: Athlete. I just go out and play hard. Whoever you tell me to guard Im going to guard and whatever you tell me to do Im going to do.
