Travis Hyman: 2014 Exit Interview

By Benny Garcia | April 25, 2014

Travis Hyman appeared in 42 games (20 starts) towards averages of 7.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.1 steals on 51.4 percent field goals. He posted four double-doubles and recorded eight games with at least 10 boards.

In two postseason games vs. Santa Cruz, Hyman averaged 4.5 points, 7.0 boards and 1.0 steals.

– On how he would describe the season as a whole:
“I think it was a great season. We worked out our flaws in the beginning, but just came up short a little bit at the end. It was overall a good season, guys developed and got better.”

– On where he feels he made the most strides in his game:
“Early in the year when I was starting, I was playing in front of (Brandon Costner), I was playing pretty well. I think I improved in scoring and rebounding.”

– On how he saw the team handle the multiple NBA Call-Ups, constant roster turnover and injuries that hit the team during the year:
“We weren’t trying to do to much to second guess ourselves and we stuck together as a team, and we did what we were supposed to do, so I think we responded well.”

– On if it was frustrating for him to go down with an injury towards the end of the regular season and how he tried to stay optimistic:
“It was very frustrating because I had been playing so well and teams were interested in me, and then I got hurt. It put a damper on things, but at the same time, I couldn’t let it deter me from what I had to do or what I was trying to accomplish. Just watching the team play and win was good. As long as they were winning, I didn’t have any problems and I just tried to keep a positive outlook.”
*Hyman missed seven games from Mar. 5 to Mar. 22 because of a bone bruise.

– On his plans for the offseason:
“I want to try and master the jump hook. I also have a few workouts coming up with a few teams and then we’ll go from there.”
