Tim Duncan

What did last year’s NCAA tournament run mean to you?
Last years NCAA tournament run was a successful, wonderful, and unforgettable experience for me. It is a great inspiration for all of us in the future.

What is one thing every JMU student should do at JMU before graduating?
There are a lot of things that makes this place special and interesting to be here, so I cannot give one precise answer.

If not basketball, what other sport would you play?

What will it take for you to consider this season a success?
This year we have a new young team and I think the season will be a success if we are able to play effectively as a team and if we keep a place somewhere at the top of our conference. I believe in my team and I think that we will have good season.

Other than playing pro basketball, what are your career goals?
My goal is also to graduate and to be successful in my future profession.

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?
I would like to go to Tibet, or some place in Latin America because of their different culture and energy and I would be able to see the world and life from another perspective.

How old were you when you first knew that you wanted to play basketball in college?
16 years old.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
That is too far away to think about, I am just concerned about tomorrow.
