I stood on the free throw line a lot. I just calmed down and saw the basketball hit the net. This also opened up my jump shot status and opened it up for me. Breakthrough route. I just try to play freely on the court. I know this is the moment I have been waiting for in my entire career. Now that I am here, I have to make the most of this opportunity because it is not often available. My teammates I did a good job to make sure I can catch the ball at a comfortable shooting point to play well."
