Christ the King is back in the CHSAA Semifinals after they pulled off a 71-55 win over St. Raymond in the Quarterfinals. Junior wing Ryan Myers put together an impressive performance with 17 points going 3-5 from three and also had 5 assists. He talked to HG Insider following this big win for Christ The King.

Q: What’s it like coming out with a big victory like that and now heading into the Semifinals?

A: “Number one it was our maturity and sticking to the game plan. Even though, they beat us by a lot earlier this season we weren’t worried and knew we could still beat them.”

Q: You guys have had an up and down season, but it looks like you are finding your groove in the playoffs. What does that say about this team?

A: “It comes down to sticking to the cause and trusting the process. We have a winning culture at Christ the King and we just want to keep it going. We believe in each other and Coach Arbitello believes we can beat anyone.”

Q: You now are set to play against a talented team Bishop Loughlin in the semifinals, what’s the mindset going down the final stretch of the playoffs?

A: “We just have to take it one game at a time. We played Bishop Loughlin twice already this year so we will have a game plan for them. We are going to have to execute and play together.”

Q: What would you say that you bring to any team that you play for?

A: “I would say that I am a sharpshooting playmaker and I’m definitely a leader for this team because we are young. I’m just trying to build up the younger guys so we can win.”

Q: What are people going to learn about you the more they see you going forward?

A: “I think they are definitely going to see that I can play on the ball. I’m going to try and show that I can play on the ball and become a point guard on the next level.”

Q: What’s the latest with your recruitment?

A: “Clemson liked what they saw at Hoop Hall and Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Cincinnati, Fordham, Bryant and more are involved with my recruitment.”
