Jeremiah Wilson: Helping Lead Surprise Ostrava to the Top of the NBL - Nov 2, 2012

Jeremiah
Wilson
Unquestionably the biggest surprise of the early going in the Mattoni NBL has been the impressive 8-1 start BK Nova Hut Ostrava. Since 2000 BK Nova Hut Ostrava has only had one top-five league finish and the only postseason success they have had of any sort has been a 1007 Czech Cup Finals appearance. That is not to say that the club does not invest into putting a good product on the court, as perennially they field a competitive mix of foreign imports as well as up-and-coming Czech talent. However this season seems to have brought together the right ingredients for a very special season. First year Head Coach Dusan Medvecky and his club received very high praise after defeating BK Decin 82-70 in Decin on Wednesday as Decin and Czech National Team Coach Pavel Buda labeled them as a team he could definitely see playing in this season's finals. The mix of veteran leadership at point guard with Rahsaan Ames (184-PG-78, college: Shaw) and youthful exuberance from Adam Ciz (190-PG-91) have mixed with the frontcourt duo of Jeremiah Wilson (203-F-88, college: Tarleton St.) and Justin Greene (203-F-89, college: Kent St.) has proven very potent. However, signaling out just one player on a team which goes nine-deep and has everyone of those nine players averaging five points per game or more is difficult. But, third-year forward Jeremiah Wilson has had just the kind of start to this season which merits noting. Wilson, 6-8, has played at an All-Star level thus far, averaging 12.3 points (second on the team), while leading BK Nova Hut Ostrava in rebounding (8.8rpg) as well as connecting on 39.1% from three-point range. After finishing his collegiate career at NCAA2 Tarleton State, the 24-year old Wilson has played in Argentina, Chile and Australia prior to moving up in level to the Czech Republic this season with BK Nova Hut Ostrava.

Q. How did the opportunity to join BK Nova Hut Ostrava come about?
A. This opportunity came as a surprise, when I found out about BK Nova Hut Ostrava I was in the process of training with the (NBDL) Texas Legends, but when my agent informed me about the chance to play in the Czech Republic in Europe I had to take advantage of this opportunity!

Q. Prior to joining BK BK Nova Hut Ostrava, what did you know about the Czech Republic and NBL?
A. I didnt know much about the NBL here in Czech, or much about the Country in general I just knew that the quality of basketball would be more competitive because its a part of Europe.

Q. What do you feel has been the key to your and the team's success so far?
A. The main reason that the team is successful so far is because of our defense! We also know the role that each of us has to play in order for our team to win. The reason that I am having a decent season so far is because of how hard I will play every game, I have to do whatever it takes for me and my team to succeed.

Q. You have had quite the journey professionally the last two seasons, from Argentina to Chile and then Australia. How have those experiences helped prepare you for this season in the Czech Republic.
A. The previous countries I have played in helped me out in all different ways, Playing in Argentina and Chile help me play alot tougher and stronger and prepared me for how physical FIBA basketball will be, while Australia helped me display alot of my offensive skills and showed me what it takes to win a Championship.

Q. Since college you've definitely developed your three-point shot more while still maintaining a proficiency for rebounding. Was this something you felt was necessary to succeed at the pro level?
A. Yes! Rebounding and Three-point Shooting has always been two of my main strengths but three-point shooting wasn't a big part of my role at Tarleton State, but I knew I would have to upgrade my shooting all-around to become a successful professional basketball player, Rebounding takes effort and thats what I like to contribute to the team.

Q. How have you adjusted to life in BK Nova Hut Ostrava? What is the biggest difference here versus living and playing in say Chile?
A. I have adjusted well so far, there really isnt that big of a difference for me in the countries except for the understanding the language, I could adapt quick to the spanish language but Czech is little harder to understand.

Q. Your expectations for the rest of the season?
A. My expectations are to keep improving as a player and a team and win a Medal for this season.
