EJ Singler talks Summer League
Former Oregon Men’s Basketball star EJ Singler
joined guest host Fletcher Johnson on The Bald-Faced Truth Tuesday afternoon to talk about his summer league experience with the Detroit Pistons.
“Everyone out there is big, strong, and fast. The people who make it through summer league into the pros, they’re the best from the college teams, so you’re playing against the best players in the world.”
During the 2012 postseason, Singler and the Ducks made it to the NCAA Sweet 16 for the first time since 2007.
““It means everything to me, really happy for the team and the program. They’re going to just keep getting better. It’s just awesome to see and I can’t wait to see what happens next year.”
On his former coach Dana Altman, Singler said, “He’s a great teacher, great leader, and great motivator. He came in each day fired up and ready to go. [Altman] is a great guy and a great coach.”
Oregon eventually lost their Sweet 16 game to Lousville, who went on to win that year’s National Championship. Singler is now teammate’s with former Louisville point guard Peyton Siva.
“I’m happy he’s on my team now, we obviously knew each other from that game. It’s been fun playing with him, and hopefully we can finish summer league off right.”
