Dream Vision had one of the most impressive weekends at the Adidas Gauntlet West Regional. They went undefeated with a 4-0 record and a big reason why was their starting point guard Dominick Harris. The class of 2020 Gonzaga commit ran the show for them and had them playing together very well. He spoke about his team’s performance this past weekend.
Q: Describe what you have shown here at the West Regional. How do you guys think you’ve done this weekend?
A: “I feel like coming into this tournament we were one of the most dominant teams out of everyone here. I feel like we have some pros on our team with our whole starting five. We are a big team, we got out in transition and I feel like our speed puts us a step ahead.”
Q: Not all talented teams gel right away like you guys have here. What would you say makes you guys play so cohesively?
A: “We hang out off the court a lot so we have really good chemistry. We have played with each other a lot and I’ve known a lot of these guys my whole life. I feel like we are very unselfish on the floor and it shows. We like to move the ball and run the score up on teams.”
Q: You play with a high basketball I.Q. when on the floor. Where does that come from?
A: “I study the game a lot and I feel like if I’m more poised I can see a step ahead. I also can react faster so I feel like being poised and patient helps my game.”
Q: Who are some players that you study?
A: “My favorite player is Damian Lillard so I take a lot of stuff from his game. I also like D’Angelo Russell, he’s a very poised point guard and I like Kyrie Irving. I take things from a lot of NBA players and put it into mine.”
Q: You decided to commit to Gonzaga early, why did you think it was your college home?
A: “I felt like it was a good fit, the coaches showed a lot of support and every event I played in they went to. I feel like it was a good fit for me and I feel like I’m going to go there and make an immediate impact. I just want to win and get to the NCAA tournament to show what I’m capable of.”
Q: What excites you the most about going there down the road?
A: “I would say the winning attitude with them being a top five or ten program every year. They were number one in the nation this year, they get out and run with transition threes. That’s just all really intriguing to me.”
Q: The number one goal for every team in the Adidas Gauntlet is to win the whole thing. What needs to be done to win the title this season?
A: “I feel like we just have to have more practices, keep getting to know each other and just keep going at teams. If we run up the score and have fun with it, I think we can win.”
