My second year playing basketball at Emory University
2018-05-30

[SCIE web news, May 30th, 2018] I am 2016er graduate Daniel Liu. I’m now a student at Emory University. By sharing my stories in the US and some of my personal thoughts, I hope to give you an insight into what student’s life here is really like. This can also act as a guidance for your future college choice.

 

I have just finished my second season at Emory Oxford Eagles Basketball team. After my rookie year, both my skills and confidence have gotten stronger. I did not get a lot of playing time in my rookie season. I played a total of 11 games and scored 10 points in total. I spent most of my time on the bench, cheering for my teammates. However, as some of the seniors graduated and left the team, I knew I am going to take on a bigger role. In order to be ready for that, I practiced hard during the summer and spent a lot of time in the gym.

 

For the first few games in my second season, I still didn’t get the chance to play. I was a bit frustrated, but I knew that I should focus on the thing that I can control. So, instead of complaining about my playing time with the coaches, I lowered my expectation and practiced harder.

 

After a few games, our captain accidentally got a concussion during the practice. My opportunity has come. Coach finally put me into the regular rotation. After I played several decent games, coaches started to increase my playing time. I started the away game against Oglethorpe University and scored a career high of 14 points.

 

Looking at my stats after the season, I averaged 3.8 points and 3.4 rebounds. It doesn’t seem that stunning, but it is an improvement comparing to 0.9 points and 1.3 rebounds in my rookie season. I will keep working hard and hope that I can bring myself to another level at the next season.
