Q & A: Quantez Robertson

Feb. 12, 2007

Q: What are the big differences between your playing style now versus your freshman year?
A: My first year I spent more time focusing on getting the team into the game. This year I am more of a scorer, in addition to doing what I did last year by distributing the ball and getting the team focused.

Q: Did this season meet your expectations?
A: Not necessarily at the beginning of the season. It does now. We have won a lot more games than we did last year and we are still trying to do that. We just need to keep coming out and playing hard.

Q: What do you want to see happen with next year's team?
A: I want to see a lot more wins. I want to see a lot more progress and a lot more shooting. I also want to win on the road.

Q: As someone who is very active in community service, what do you hope to share with the kids you read to?
A: We want to give back to the kids and show them that we do more than just play basketball. We try and assist the kids with things they need help with.

Q: What do you gain from your experience with community service?
A: It is fun when we go read to the little kids. People use to do the same thing when I was younger. They would come read to us, and it is nice to be able to give back.

Q: As you get older, what do you see your role becoming on the team?
A: Right now I am a defensive threat and I try to help the team win. That's going to be my role throughout my junior and senior seasons. I'm going to keep trying to do what I am doing now.

Q: What is the biggest challenge for you trying to juggle both basketball and schoolwork?
A: The hardest thing is trying to get up and go to class the next morning after getting back from a road game. You have to get up and go though, because you never know when you are going to miss something or have a test.

Q: What is your favorite thing about Auburn?
A: Of course basketball, but other than that, I enjoy going to the football games. I also like going out with the team and chilling at the house.

Q: Have you seen your game improve while playing under Coach Lebo?
A: Tremendously. When I was at prep school I didn't handle the ball as much. Now I am more of a point guard, a scoring point guard at that.

Q: What piece of advice would you give an athlete coming in to play college sports?
A: Don't try to do too much. Let the game come to you, and you'll be alright.

Q: If you had to pick one of your teammates to be stuck with for a week, who would it be?
A: My roommate, Quan (Prowell).

Q: What do you do to relax?
A: I sit at the house and watch TV. My favorite is Jamie Foxx.

Q: Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years?
A: If I am not playing in the NBA or overseas, behind the desk of some corporate job.
