Re: Thank You James Bishop

JB was interviewed by the Field of 68 about the performance and the year ahead: Horns up, Dogs down | The Field of 68 Daily (

Q: Your 44 points on Tuesday are the most by any D-I player this season and the most by a GW player since 1999. At what point in that game did you feel like it was going to be a big game?
James Bishop: I would say when I hit my first shot, seeing the ball go in early is big so when that first one went in I knew I would have it going.

Q: What was Coach Caputo's reaction? It would've been nice to enjoy a game like that and win, so what was the takeaway?
Bishop: He recognized there were a lot of things that we could have done better in that game, but he also was happy with how our team continued to fight and never let the scoreboard affect our effort. The goal is always to win, but we were able to take some positive things away from the game.

Q: Defense has been an issue thus far. What needs to improve for your team on that side of the ball?
Bishop: I would say we just have to continue to work on our pick and roll coverages. Just having guys in the correct spots at the correct times. We’ve been working on that in practice and watching in a lot in film. This will also improve the more we continue to play with one another.

Q: GW plays in the Diamond Head Classic over the Christmas holiday. Will it be weird to have Christmas and hit the beach afterward? Or will you guys even get to enjoy some surf and sun?
Bishop: It will definitely be a change of scenery for us, especially with how the weather is in December. But something we are all looking forward to. It’s always nice to get some nice weather in the middle of December.

What a fun player.

Like Chris Monroe career at GW, not paired with enough talent around him but helluva fun player to watch

#1 in the Nation in points produced

24.0 points per game now.   Amazing, because he's been in a bit of a shooting slump from 3/the line.

but shooting over 68% from 2, incredible for a 6'2 Guard.

24 points  5 dimes.    Here's the top 10 in points produced.  Estrada is #7

Re: Thank You James Bishop

So happy to have James back. He's been awesome this year and is primed for great things. Definitely in the Yuta/Tyler Cavanaugh realm of success or better.
