Dwight Burke
Dwight Burke (202-C/F-86, college: Marquette) is currently helping BC Siauliai close out the Lithuanian LKL regular season on a high note as the playoffs approach. Currently 11-8 with one game left after Monday nights 92-81 setback versus Lietuvos rytas, Siauliai is tied with Juventus and Pieno zvaigzdes with 58 points.
The already well-traveled Burke, 26, began this season with BK 04 AC LB Spisska Nova Ves in Slovakia where he posted career highs in scoring, rebounds and steals prior to an issue with his Visa forcing him to move to BC Siauliai.
The former Marquette University forward out of Brooklyn, New York has already played professionally in Uruguay, Czech Republic, France and Austria prior to this season and continues to improve and round out his game as a 6-8 forward.

Q. Monday was your best game as a member of Siauliai, playing 22 minutes while scoring 12 points and grabbing five rebounds. Are you now fully comfortable with your new team and situation?

A. I am feeling more comfortable. It took a while, longer than I was hoping for, but going into a new team and situation there is always an adjustment period. I feel like its harder sometimes for a forward to do so sometimes because different teams have different styles of play for their front line players. Some like them to be more involved and versatile, some like just pick and roll guys. So I had to find my place within the team and still am to a certain degree, but Monday night the game just came to me and I went out and just tried to make an impact. It worked out for me personally, but we didnt get the win, so it tainted my performance somewhat.

Q. Lietuvos rytas is a perennial powerhouse not only in Lithuania, but also in Euro competitions. What was the atmosphere like playing against them and how would you compare it to some of the other top teams you have faced in your career?

A. Rytas has a very good club and very good players. They were playing in Euroleague this year so that alone says a lot. I get a little more excited about games like that because since leaving college in 2009 I cant say Ive always faced top competition. The only other team I can think of that compares is Nymburk (when I played in Czech Republic). So its a good chance to measure my level of personal growth within competition. Also I aspire to play for clubs participating at the highest level in Europe so if I can make a good impact when I step on the court in those games then I feel like Im taking steps in the right direction.

Q. After having to leave Nova Ves, what was the main factor in agreeing to terms with Siauliai?

A. When it became clear that I was going to leave Nova Ves, I struggled with deciding what to do with the rest of my season. I was having a great season and looking forward to finishing it out making a nice run in the playoffs and maybe even winning the championship. So naturally I considered just going back to the U.S. and weighing my options for next season. Then my agent contacted me about the offer in Siauliai. After looking at their reputation and seeing an opportunity to play on a higher level it was really an easy decision for me.

Q. The team is still battling for playoff positioning and it comes down to the last game of the regular season. What is the feeling among your team about what needs to be done to succeed in the playoffs? What about your personal pressure or feelings?

A. Thats correct; right now we are fighting for seeding. That will come down to Fridays game and determine where we will be, and who we will play. We want to finish the season strong and gain the best possible seed. I personally dont feel any pressure because its still basketball and I love to do it. I was not expecting to be in this position, for this club at the beginning of my season, so I just want to continue to get better and compete at a high level. I leave the rest up to God and let the chips fall where they may.

Q. Regardless of how the team fares in the playoffs, how will you look back on this season for yourself? What new things did you learn about your game as well as the business of overseas basketball?

A. As with every season, there are ups and downs. My goal this season was to complete a whole season with one club and try to dominate enough to rebuild my resume after having a sub-par season prior to this one. I bounced around to three different teams out of necessity and wanted to get back to being myself as a player. I grew a lot as a player in Spisska. I felt my skill level increased and my ability to lead a team and make an impact. I cant neglect the influence that playing alongside my college teammate Maurice Acker (178-PG-87, college: Marquette) had on me. We both want to see each other succeed and pushed ourselves to be better. Unfortunately the situation in Spisska Nova Ves didnt pan out the way I would like, but Im very blessed and appreciative of the opportunity to finish the season playing for a Siauliai. I hope it will open up great opportunities to advance my career in the future.
