Interview with USF's Danny Cavic

Here is an interview with Danny Cavic. Cavic just finished his playing career with the USF Dons recently. He was one of the best shooters on the team and averaged 43% on his three-point attempts. He averaged 8.9 points a game this season.

What was your most memorable game in your career as a Don?
It would probably have to be the game at Pepperdine this year.Not only was it Coach Sutton's 800th win, but I played well and hit the game-winning basket in front of my family and friends.

What will you miss most about being a Don?
I'll definitely miss being around my teammates. The friendships that I've built over the years are the most important things to me. Games come and go, but I'll always consider my teammates as part of my family.

Which player do you expect to improve the most from this season to next season?
I expect Myron Strong to improve the most over the summer. He had a great freshman year and he was able to showcase his talent. It can be difficult to adjust from high school to college basketball, but he's handled it very well. By next year, he'll have time to mature as a player and be one of the leaders of the team.

What were some of the biggest differences between Coach Evans and Coach Sutton?
The biggest difference would have to be style of play. Although they're both great coaches, they run the team differently. Coach Sutton runs a more disciplined style of play, while Coach Evans allows more freedom for players.

Who was the best player that you ever played against? Adam Morrison is my guess.
That's a good guess! Adam Morrison is definitely the best player that I've played against. He was really on a completely different level than anyone else. Nevertheless, it was a lot of fun to guard him... or at least try to. (laughs)

Do you plan to play professional basketball anywhere?
As of right now, I'm planning on playing professionally overseas. I'm going to take some time off to relax, and then we'll see what happens. Things could change.

Which gym in the WCC do you feel is the toughest gym to play in?
I wouldn't say any gym is tough to play in. Gonzaga has the best fans and loudest fans by far. I actually find it more exciting to play in that type of atmosphere because it's an adrenaline rush. It's an incredible feeling to play in that arena. I've always been impressed with their fan base, and I had a lot of fun playing in front of them.

What is next for you?
I don't really have any long-term plans. I'm just trying to enjoy my last semester of school and see where the road takes me. My brother is going to be competing in the Olympics in Beijing so hopefully I'll have a chance to make it out there.
