– 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.”
