Q&A with Dalen Terry

Compton Magic guard Dalen Terry has had solid performances in his first three games in the Adidas Gauntlet here at the West Coast Regional. The class of 2020 guard has been on the rise for quite some time now and he doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

Q: What have you seen from your team in these first three games?

A: “I feel like everyone has contributed in a big way and we are playing together well. That’s a tradition in this program and we all did what we had to do.”

Q: Your name has started to take off, what’s it like to see yourself emerge as a prospect?

A: “I’ve just been trying to get bigger and stronger so I can finish with contact like I did today. I just want to keep excelling at everything I do like being a better point guard and just keep growing as a player.”

Q: What are people going to realize about your game as this season goes on?

A: “That I am a knockdown shooter, I can control the pace of the game and I can really play defense.”

Q: You’ve gone on official visits to Cal-Berkeley and Utah. What did you like about the Utah visit?

A: “It was really good because I already know a lot of kids who have been there. I know what to expect there and one of my friends goes there now. It was just a great experience visiting there.”

Q: What schools have been recruiting you the hardest?

A: “A lot of Pac-12 schools, but I’d say a lot of schools have been recruiting me the same amount. I just got offered by Arkansas, Florida is coming on, Texas and more have been on me.”

Q: When talking about this team, the first thing that will come to mind is how talented you guys are. What’s something that makes you guys as good as you are that most people don’t get to see?

A: “We all love each other so we know how to get everyone involved and how to win games.”

Q: What do you bring to this team?

A: “I would say bringing energy and how I compete is what I bring?

Q: What goals do you have for this year?

A: “Win everything we compete in and just to keep growing. We want to do what we did last year.”

Top Performance: 11 point game against Chauncey Billups in a 64-63 loss.
