A few thoughts from future Terrapin Haukur Palsson
Future Maryland swingman Haukur Palsson didn't have the most prolific night Thursday at the Capital Classic. He finished with three points on 1-of-2 shooting, an output he was able to joke about afterward.
"It was fun," Palsson said. "I wish I gotten some more shots, though. But, I mean, it's just a game, so we're just trying to have fun and that was accomplished. I wish we'd gotten the 'W', but you can't get everything."
Palsson also chipped in four rebounds and two steals. Here's what else he had to say:
On guards Terrell Stoglin and Pe'Shon Howard, future Terrapins who also competed at the Capital Classic: "I like them a lot. Terrell, he was always talking to me, trying to get me open. They were passing first and looking to score next, so I'm looking forward to staying with them the next four years."
On his plans over the next couple of months: "Just working on my all-around game, especially my quickness and athleticism. That's my main project now in the next couple of months. Trying to get my quickness up."
On how Iceland, his native country, compares to the District: "You’ve got the seasons. So do we. It’s not like Florida where they’ve got one season all around, but I like it here. That’s one of the reasons why I chose [Maryland] is it’s similar to Iceland. We’ve got summer when it’s summer. We’ve got snow when it’s winter. It feels like home here, so it’s good."
