The Observer sat down with men’s basketball captain Hunter Hill to discuss the end of the season.
1. How do you feel about your most recent loss?
“It’s a tough one. Anytime you get to the Elite Eight, every team is gonna be good at that point. It’s just tough to see all the guys. They put in all this work. Our goal was to win it all. Coming up short is a little upsetting. It was an exciting season though.”
2. What were your feelings at the end of the season?
“Disappointed in the way we finished but at the same time, if you’ve got a team whose expectations are to win the championship that’s pretty cool within itself.”
3. What were the team’s goals this season?
“We had very high expectations this year, especially after coming back from a second place finish last year. We wanted to go undefeated at home, win our conference championship and ultimately win it all. We met almost every goal.”
4. Biggest takeaway from this season?
“I would say the expectations for this year for the most part we met them. It’s not a bad season, that’s for sure. The goals were so high for this team that it was pretty awesome to see us get most of them.”
5. What were the team’s biggest obstacles this season?
“Our biggest obstacle was injuries. Anytime you lose a key part of your team, it’s tough. Every guy is a big factor in our team.”
6. If you could describe the season in just one word, what would it be and why?
“Exciting! There’s been over a hundred teams in Augustana history and to have the most wins ever; that’s pretty impressive.”
7. What was the most memorable moment for you this season?
“I’m not sure if there’s one in particular but just playing in front of the Carver Crazies and the Augustana community all year. There’s not too many atmospheres like the Carver Center.”
8. What has Augustana basketball taught you within the past four years?
“It’s taught me that anytime you’re on a team, it’s the relationships you build that are going to last so much longer than any win or loss. If you can build strong relationships and have success with people you’re working with, that’s going to go further than anything.”
