"Unfinished Business" - Aug 24, 2013

E-mail Jeff:
Jeff's Articles

That's how naturalised combo guard Andrew Lasker (188-PG-82, college: Point Loma) describes his mission this season at Newcastle Eagles.

A player that has played almost 250 games in The BBL averaging 15.8 pts, 5.4 rebounds, 2. 5 assists and 1.7 steals per game is certainly a great signing for The Eagles bringing a wealth of experience plus all-round ability and energy to revive a roster looking to return to the Top of British Basketball.

Lasker who played 9 games at the end of the 2010/11 season for The Eagles averaging almost 13 pts a game enjoyed his time on Tyneside in that short spell and it is no secret that both parties were keen to re-engage that union at some stage. It hasn't quite happened over the last couple of seasons but when the opportunity came, all sides were happy to make it happen.

He spoke to EuroBasket as he was about to arrive on Tyneside and get in to serious pre-season training with his new team-mates.

How did you get the news of that Newcastle were interested in re-signing you and what did you think when told about it?

"I was contacted by Newcastle the day following their Playoff Final lost to Leicester Riders. Initially, I didn't think anything of it because they just wanted to get a feel of my intentions for the up coming season and I had begun the negotiation process to resign with Plymouth."

Did the short spell you had two years ago with The Eagles influence your decision to re-join?

"Absolutely! During the month I was at Newcastle I got a good feel how the organisation was run. I walked away with an understanding of how they have been so successful the past 10 years. If an opportunity ever arose in the future, I wanted be part of the professionalism for a full season."

You've had a lot of great years at Plymouth, are you sad to leave?

"I wouldn't use the word sad per say. I have a lot of respect for everyone involved within the organisation and have built many relationships throughout the years there. Without a doubt it is my second home!"

You're an experienced BBL player what were your thoughts on last seasons campaign?

"I thought it was an exciting season for the fans. You had a two team race for the title up to the last few weeks of the season. Also, 4 teams within a game or two jockeying for 3-6. I felt like the sky coverage improved along with attendance throughout the league."

Eagles played second fiddle to Leicester Riders last season what did you feel were the differences between them last season?

"Depth and health! Riders were healthy throughout the season and could win different ways. I felt Eagles became a little predicable but that was down to injuries nevertheless. You have to give credit where its due and Riders earned the right to be the top team in the BBL last season."

Do you see Riders as The Eagles main competition again this season?

"Riders will be the favourites with continuity and core returning this season. However, everyone has seemed to improve their rosters therefore it should be an exciting season!"

Who else do you think are strong?

"Wolves, Raiders and Rocks seem strong on paper. However, if I have learned anything in my career it is never to judge a team on paper! You must go out and earn Silverware!"

Are you excited about the new team Fab Flournoy is putting together?

"I am really excited with the team Fab, Dave and Paul has assembled. It will be the most turnover I have seen at Eagles and the fresh blood will be exciting for our fans. They have reloaded as opposed to rebuild and I can't wait to build chemistry with the guys next week."

When you signed for The Eagles you said you had "unfinished business"?

"It took me a few months to get over that Playoff semi-final loss to Sharks when we were up by 9 on aggregate after the first game. We didn't finish the job in the second game and reminds me of the "unfinished business" slogan."

What do you think you can bring to The Eagles and what are your hopes and expectations for the coming season?

"Coming to a team where there will be a lot of new faces my experience will help Chuck and Darius with the process of making sure we are all on the same page and have our eyes on the same goal! As far as a physical contribution, I will never guarantee percentages or stats. The attributes that I can always guarantee is that I will rebound, defend and play hard."

Finally, have you a message for the fans in Newcastle?

"The fans will be more important than ever as we will need them to help us with transition of reloading. It will be important for them to make sure the new guys understand the tradition of the Newcastle Eagles. Team goals come before individual ones as we work to bring the trophies back to Newcastle! I look forward to meeting you all and enjoying a great season together!"

Committed, focused and determined would seem three good words to describe Lasker's intentions this season as there's no doubt that he will give as much as he can for The Eagles cause this season.
