Summer Sessions: John Underwood

Last week, PowerMizzou.com started our Summer Sessions with the Tiger basketball team. Today, we finish up with John Underwood.

PowerMizzou.com: Last year, you told me you needed to add weight. You happy with the progress you've made, getting up over 225?

John Underwood: "Oh yeah. I've put on a lot of weight since then."

PM: Other than just sitting down and eating more, how do you add that much weight?

JU: "You know, just eat protein, protein bars, shakes and eat the right kind of food."

PM: You feel like you're in a better position to play and see minutes than you were last year?

JU: "Yeah. It's all going to work out. I'm just going to work hard every day. That's what I'm doing."

PM: Everybody at this level is used to being the star. Was last year tough for you?

JU: "Yeah. Every year's gonna be a challenge because it's always different players that play the same position as you. I'm just gonna keep working hard every day. That's all you can do."

PM: Expectations are pretty high. Is the team excited to get everybody here and get going?

JU: "Oh yeah. It's really exciting to get everybody here and get it going, start practicing and just move forward."

PM: Where do you think you've made the most improvement on the court?

JU: "I'd have to say probably just getting my mid-range down a little bit more than last year. That's the biggest thing."
