A Word From:
Jerice Crouch; A Rochester Fan Favorite-Gives His Side on How the RazorSharks Will Prepare for Lake Michigan
In his eighth season with the Rochester RazorSharks, Jerice Crouch brings the most experience and knowledge to the team during their preparations for the 2015 PBL Championship series against the Lake Michigan Admirals.
Crouch currently sits in fourth on the team in scoring with 189 points in 15 games. However, Jerice’s on-court star play comes primarily with his ability to spread the ball around the team, catch his opponents out of position and set up a teammate with a great shot opportunity. He currently leads the team and the league with 108 assists, nearly 20 assists ahead of second place in the league, fellow teammate Kyle Randall.
As a long-time member of the RazorSharks, Crouch has become a fan favorite in the city of Rochester and people in the city have submitted a couple questions for him:
You have faced the Admirals nearly a dozen times over your eight years with the RazorSharks. What makes them different this year than in years past?
Crouch: What makes this team different is that they are competing at a high level and playing championship ball.
The Admirals are amongst the best in the league in steals, blocks, and rebounds. How are you and the rest of the ‘Sharks going to approach the Admirals tough defense?
JC: We feel like we also are one of the league’s best defensive teams and we are going to keep that mindset going into this championship series.
This is the RazorSharks first undefeated season. What separates this team from others that you played for over the years?
JC: I just think this team loves to compete. I know the man next to me hates to lose just as much as me and it goes down to the next player, and etc. We are one.
JC: I just want to let Shark nation know that we will continue to display the hard work and respect for the game that they have grown to love about us. Our goal is to be a championship team and this is our last obstacle in our quest for that goal. We love you Shark nation!
