Moldoveanu to EH: ''I feel that I have so unfinished business that I have to take care of''
March 7th. American University (NCAA) lost in the semifinals of the Patriot League against Lehigh (79-57). Romanian 2.06 forward Vlad Moldoveanu ('88) has been the leader of the Eagles this season, finishing with 18.1 points (39% threes), 6.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists. The prospect couldn't imagine that one year ago. He was playing at George Mason, but with another role. Bosnian Adnan Hodzic ('88), from Lipscomp (NCAA), declared early-entry for the NBA Draft. But Moldoveanu decided not to do it. Eurohopes contacted the romanian.
-After two seasons in George Mason (NCAA) you went to American University (NCAA). What were the reasons?
I chose to transfer from George Mason because I felt that it was not the right fit anymore, playing time had definitely something to do with it but also the role on the team was an important factor in my decision.
-You have been one of the best european prospects in NCAA this year. Tell us your sensations upon the season is off.
I think I had a great individual season especially coming after a sophmore year where I have not played much. I think I could have done better though and there is always room for improvement.
-You didn't declare eligible for the NBA draft. Why you decided that?
I was thinking about it but I thought it would be better for me to stay in college, get my degree and also play my senior year. It gives me more time to work on my game and get stronger. Also the fact that we did not win our conference motivated me to come back because I feel that I have so unfinished business that I have to take care of.
-Not a lot of people can say a name of a romanian player. Maybe Muresan has been the most famous. How is basketball growing in your home country?
Overall the federation is trying to make basketball bigger. There have been good romanian players throughout history but most people remember George for the fact that he played in the NBA which is the highest level that anyone can play at.
-What do you expect for next season?
Right now I am thinking about my national team and how can we qualify from our group then as far as next year goes. I look forward to having a good year and hopefully winning the conference. Personally I expect a lot out of myself and I know a lot of the pressure is on my shoulders but I like to think of that as my work being appreciated and I look at it as a challenge and not necesarily as pressure. I expect a lot out of me and so do the people that I play for or with no matter if it is the national team or at school.
Good luck from Eurohopes.
