Hello, ladies and gentlemen, welcome here the be all here on Sports Castle.
I was gonna thank you, everyone for supporting my channel on this is gonna be a fantastic interview with former Villanova star on the women's basketball team.
The Wildcats eight.
She's a three time Gatorade player of the year.
She currently holds the record for most threes in the Big East, which is a big division.
Adriaan was in the Big East when she was playing Yukon.
Was it in the Big East? But you got a big up team and also rocket.
So she is just a great play on that.
Chosen to hold the record, I'm for most threes.
And if you don't know that woman basketball and going images, your foreign damages oil, uh, over Google.
So let's you just, uh What's up, Isaac? What's going on? Yeah, thank you so much for coming on here.
So, uh, if you could just tell my street about you on about haunt hoops and how you've been getting through this grown of ours.
Yeah, dude personal.
I just have to say, shown up to a nice T shirt you're wearing. It's awesome.
I love it, but yeah, quarantine.
And, you know, I'm just trying to still do as much basketball as I can figure it out.
I think right now is the time where people need to just understand and create new and adapted changes.
I think that's a part of life.
And sadly, you know, never did we think we would live through a pandemic, right? But who knows what to do? And nobody seems to really have the answers.
So there's not really a right or wrong way to do things, you know, And whatever you are doing, if it's beneficial for you, you know, go do it instead for me.
I'm going back to my old school days playing hoops outside, you know, wearing dirty sneakers, not caring about No, the the swag.
Just doing the dirty work, getting gritty out there.
And you know, it's not what I plan on doing for the summer.
I plan on having Han hoops camps and a couple, you know, group sessions definitely still doing individual workouts, cause it's fair and healthy to do right now.
But, you know, um, I have to adjust so right now trying to figure that out.
So thank you, everyone for watching Happy Mother's Day.
People taking the time to come and watch our show on especially Adriana, who was taking the time to be on my show.
So we're gonna get right into this video and let me ask you, Adriana.
So there Villanova men's basketball team is a great team also like yours, But they've won national the N C A A tournament recently in 2016 and 2018.
So how does that affect you in terms off your at the same college as a men's basketball team who won a national championship? And maybe you have a connection with some of the boys on the men's basketball team? Yeah, I think you know, some of us will have a forever connection, which is great.
Um, and to have them right next door, just height in my career in itself.
Um, it got me prepared for, you know, some of the things that I may have missed in my program, which is okay.
You know, there's gonna be, you know, not everybody does their job right. We're human.
And to be able to learn next door from a national championship team and coach and program is just so beneficial.
I mean, when the guys were doing something and obviously they're doing it right, I know I might doing something wrong, right? And I need to watch them talk to them, ask them, figure it out.
You know, going next door, I saw their work ethic.
How? They're multiple hours in the day, in the court, in the weight room, doing everything in the classroom.
Um, you know, it's a grind.
Not that I couldn't do it for myself or anything like that, but I knew where my team should be if they could do it as well.
And you know, it takes preparation.
Um, a team Everybody has to play their role contribute.
But having the next door was awesome.
And I think it building built helped build my platforms to in a sense, yeah.
So everyone watching on sports cash do you probably know Adriaan and she's sportscast ozone.
She does your own video.
So let me ask you, you fat you have gone into the business side of things as well.
With basketball, you know, you still do the training which is basketball training.
But that's the business side of things.
I know you had an interview with star famous entrepreneur Gary B. S.
Just tell everyone watching how you could be a basketball player and get into the business side of things and what you personally are doing, interviewing Gary B and everyone.
Yeah, this is a great question, Isaac.
And I feel that, you know, like I said before, there is not a right or wrong answer to do anything.
And I feel that throughout my career, while I'm experiencing this, I'm always going Teoh, um, learn something new and add that to the pot, right? And then as you and more ideas and add your business and build it and do the things you like to dio and figure it out.
You can go. Hey, I can do this.
And I like to do this, you know? Oh, crap.
I could do it at the same time.
But im doing at the same time, I have this great, bigger idea that I never would have thought of credit and put two and two together.
So now, right when I left college wasn't a basketball player, anymore.
I thought I didn't have any value.
And that's not that's not true.
I have a bunch of talent in a bunch of skills that I learned on a basketball court that a lot of people didn't think I could articulate in the real world or the business world.
And actually, not only can I articulate it, but I could bring basketball with me.
And don't just have to be a player to be involved in a sport toe.
Love a sport the common about a sport, you know, or to do things like this with sports after.
I mean, this platform is amazing.
Um, if I don't know SportsCastr, you know, I think I'd be lost trying to figure out how to do my media content.
You know how to reach people like you and create these conversations? Yep.
So then God's a SportsCastr E that I knew about you.
I'm not a big college fan, but I when I spell you on sports, Gastone like Adriana Han.
That sounds for Miller.
Familiar for Miller? Yeah, And with their bee.
Yeah, And then I looked up your social media.
I'm like Gary B.
And then I looked up your highlights.
And I'm, like, record for most reason.
The Big East, that big position.
And again, you didn't play against UConn, But you can has great players.
And they're good three point shooters in the fact that no one has been a record.
That shows you how good you must have been, right? Yeah. Yeah.
I mean, Maya Moore is on that list.
Uh, that kind and all that stuff.
You know, Gary V was great, and you'd be surprised.
Like I didn't know Gary V three months ago.
Right? Anything can happen.
I stuck to what I wanted to do with my social media.
I did change my waas.
I thought there were things that I needed to talk about because I cared about them.
And I had great ideas.
Right? And things were just clicking in my head all of a sudden, great professionals that Gary, do you reach out to me? I get to join his network.
I get to go on teatime with Gary and his instagram lime, and I'm went to his office.
Is in New York City with his assistance.
Like who else knows what's gonna happen? Yeah, right now.
When I was you know.
So that's why I always tell people, Do what you want to dio, no matter who's knocking you down and something will be created out of it, I could promise.
So I was going to be my next question.
You like my Laker short rest in peace.
So Kobe Bryant's inspiration he knew you personally.
I hold your story before, but Great.
Well, I didn't get ready for this, right? Yeah.
So I got invited to the woman's Final Four in Ohio when I was a junior in college.
And, you know, I'm a very competitive player, so I'm always thinking like, ****, I wish I was playing in this game.
I was on this stage right now, you know, how can I bring my team here next year? Then I have a media pass because things happen like that when you build a platform and, uh, I have that opportunity.
So I'm down in the tunnel and, uh, they're like, Oh, you know, Kobe Bryant's here, and I'm like, No way.
And I am with the Notre Dame athletic director and she takes me to a room I'm with, like, five people.
Him and his family come out of the room and he goes Villanova, right? Like it threw him off.
And I said, Oh, I was so shocked.
Everybody was like, This is crazy.
He said, Yeah, he goes, How? Your knees.
Uh, you know, you know, injuries.
But it was just amazing how he knew my story, you know, me recognized me.
Um, and this whole time is a basketball player.
What? I think Kobe Bryant new I waas never did.
I think I would even meet Kobe Bryant.
Right? And in that moment, I didn't even get to tell him like how I saw him. I mean, look in my room.
You know what I mean? So that wasn't even, ah, part of the conversation in my entire life.
That was the only one thing I wanted to tell him.
But I actually got something so much bigger and better that I never thought was gonna happen when I was a kid, right? But I stuck to my dreams.
I stuck to my goals, my desires, and I got me something much better than what I even wanted before.
Yeah, so that's a special.
So, um, what do you think? The most important thing about basketballs? Well, I think, you know, I always say society needs sports, so I think from a physical perspective, you know, all sports were great.
Um, basketball, I think, is special and stands out amongst all the other sports.
And I, you know, I think with basketball, thankfully, we get to work with a team.
You know, it's not an individual sport, but I think basketball is the one team sport where the individual needs toe fully commit themselves to not only the team but to themselves.
Like I had to fully commit to myself first and then give to my team.
Right, Because if I was just gonna give to my team, it didn't.
It wouldn't start from me and it be inconsistent down the line.
So, you know, basketball taught me how to build friendships, sustain them trust, you know, go out into the business world, have ah, conversation with your coworker or with your teammate, or handle something with responsibility.
Take account accountability for something that you might not be wrong for.
Or that probably wasn't your fault.
You know, that's what point guards have to dio.
I had to take accountability for somebody else, not knowing the play.
And now you think, Wow, that's crazy.
You know, that doesn't make sense.
That it's like, yeah, And then it came down to the point where, OK, it's not just this point guard role.
Everybody should do that.
I mean, point guards have to know every position and every play.
Right? So that statement there says somebody is in the wrong position Or did the play wrong? It is my fault.
So now when I go out into the world, if I'm wrong, I apologize.
And I take accountability for it.
I fixed my mistakes.
You know, all these things that I've learned and I'm still learning to this day, right? Yeah.
So, uh, you know, with a basketball and basically every sport you build good our friendships and relationships with teammates and players on other teams.
So what do you think? For you is the most fun part about being on a college basketball team like Villanova, is it? I'm going at the team dinners.
Is it actually playing the game with on your teammates or traveling? Yeah.
If you were to ask me personally, right? My answer would be just based on my four years experience that, um, you know, like I said, I'm very competitive.
So every game I knew where I put myself here.
So when I brought that into the court in that environment, that was what I wanted out of it, right? And to be a little play for those fans in that nice arena, right? That atmosphere, the drive right.
It's mentally and physically like I'm literally there.
I see it, but mentally, when I was a kid playing outside in my little driveway with nothing, that's exactly what I saw right, because it was on TV.
Kobe Bryant love a block, right? The glamour, right? Not really that it was more so.
The role model, the leadership where I wanted myself to be, where I wanted to be challenged.
I was challenged every basketball game like, but I was.
I accepted that challenge, and I overcame and did something about it.
So I miss playing in front of a crowd.
The noise I miss, you know, you can feel the emotion and energy from the crowd if you're down to right and there's 10 seconds left.
You can feel that emotion with the crowd there in it as well.
Um, and Villanova basketball.
I mean, no better atmosphere than that.
So I miss playing at Villanova, Mr.
Wearing literally my Villanova jersey getting on the court.
Um, you know where you're going by so fast? Yep.
So my next question is, since you built such a good connection with Villanova and you're one of the best players ever to play in Villanova having that three point record.
So what's the connection with Villanova? Do you go back to Villanova and you give speeches to the players Do hang out? Do you goto track this with them just to practice, Obviously not to make the team.
I got rid of her first.
Mean we got where's in the past, come back and, um, play.
Or if they lived in the area, You know, I am 30 minutes away from my school, but, um, you know, when they're traveling in season, they're far away.
I did go to a lot of games this year.
I was also coaching my high school team in Delaware, so I was busy with that.
But ah, you know, I'm not gonna lie When I left Villanova, I kind of didn't think that I want to go back.
And you're like, you know, Wow, that's crazy.
She's actually saying that. Yeah.
What? You know, if I went back to school, it would be, um, you know, detrimental to my career.
Or, you know, I was I almost needed to go somewhere in life.
Like I had all these high, high expectations for myself after Villanova.
And I can say that sometimes I didn't really appreciate my full time there.
And, you know, you got to really live in the moment and compress it and let it sink in.
And I wish I could go back and really do that.
You know, Um, so, you know, I want to go back running my own business and basketball training.
Um, I think that one day I'll definitely coach it. Villanova.
We're talking, like, 30 years from now or something like that.
20 years, but I definitely want to be a coach.
Um, I would love to have an Adriana home camp at Villanova, so I'd have to coordinate something like that with them, which is definitely possible.
Want to definitely support the men to.
I'm excited for the new Villanova head coach on the woman's program this year.
Even almost kind of a new staff.
So everything's changing.
So, yeah, that's great, though.
Have you? I mean, uh, but but that you're I mean, if this is the Villanova Basketball Hall of Fame, there is Yeah.
And usually, um, kind of wait a couple of years when the players leave.
Yeah, but I'm for your, uh, your man bigot.
What was the biggest key to the three point record that you got runs just shooting the ball.
It wasn't just when you had the chance.
You just shot the ball or, um, training or what? What was it? I would say it stemmed from just trying to be a consistent player and having expectations for myself.
Like I don't want to miss two shots in a row.
Right? Was training.
I wanted to make five President Roh before I moved on to the next rule.
That Onley hit the net, right? Five in a row swishes.
So there's a player, right.
You have to be consistent, driven and willing to set these expectations for yourself.
That might be a little high in that time, right? But you want to reach it Hands.
I told people all the time.
I didn't even going into college.
I didn't even know records were held like that like I did.
You know, we calculate every scoreboard and game, but I didn't know that there was, like, standings and awards and recognition for things like that.
All these statistics in the game and you know, so similar to the Kobe Bryant story, man, I'm working my ass off just to be like him.
Just toe, understand? His mentality lived what he how he's living and being on the court.
Like I knew that that was the exact player and that I wanted to be.
Yeah, and I didn't fantasize him or admire him because I wanted to meet him, right? I'm valued the qualities, and some of the quality is that he had he still valuables a person.
That's crazy, right? So you know, going back to the value of my work ethic and like the value worst on myself, like I am playing basketball for, you know, the attention or the numbers on instagram or, you know, any of that that's just all came with being who I wasn't one of that one golden entire time, and that was to be successful fastball.
But to go with, you know, strictly with basketball training.
Yeah, shooting is no joke.
I have shooters have a different mentality than other basketball players.
Rights artist A lot of people might not like if I say that, but shooters are a special type of best ballplayer and that is in prison.
Mentally, they have to be super, super strong.
You know, you missed 10 shots in a room in a game, which definitely happens to the best shooters in the world.
You have the mentally prepare to keep shooting and find your rhythm and get back in your form like it is no joke.
And for those people's for those shooters, you can mist and turn it around or quickly, you know, get back to the player that they were.
And, you know, you got to make sure your form is correct.
Um, you know, full rotation.
I mean, Steph Curry shot like, if you watch videos of Seth Curry shooting, watch them ****s and slow mo, and you realize that every shot is like the singing mechanic over Not like nothing changes.
So practice tractors, tractors speaking at the practice hard.
Gotta practice with the correct form.
You can't develop bad habits.
Welcome on pre get pregame pregame me those all different trick shots so that I think, you know, like, look, he's being creative e I think you know, Do you think he actually, you know, behind closed doors? It's writing down on a piece of paper.
What trick shots he's gonna dio if I had the guests, Probably not right.
Or, you know, he's thinking about it in his hand, preparing, of course, as a human game, not for trick shots, but he's out there thinking, Wow, this balls in the corner, I'm gonna turn catch.
It might be a little where I can't see the rim, you know? I might go behind my back under my legs. Whatever.
Dribble here, dribble.
They're thinking about him being in a game or him just having fun.
Maybe you know where humans maybe had a bad day and he just needs to get some heat up like steam.
All Yeah, No, I think he's really talented and, ah, he's I think he's one of the greatest shooters of all time.
Yeah, we, uh And I think that's what mea player.
You're like a great three point You.
You don't just pull up from right behind the line, you pull up a few feet behind it, so Oh, yeah.
And I You know, I didn't do that.
I didn't start doing that because of Steph Curry, right? I didn't start because that's not him.
And then one day I was just able to do it.
That never happens like that.
When I was training, my dad would make me shoot a lot ****her behind, even though I was missing every shot, right? But it was my strength.
It was the willingness to be able to shoot from that far, because before I was like, Oh, that's too far right.
But if I never crossed that line and tried it and tried it again and tried it again and try it again, I would have never been great at it.
You're good at it.
You know what I mean? So you got to see it.
You got a feel it and I think it do it.
Don't waste your time just continuing.
Think and think and think about it cause you're thinking about the same thing.
All right, just get up and go do it.
And if you don't know how to do it, just get up and start.
Okay? So if you have to say one thing to any basketball player, um, that our lives that's trying to make a college basketball team.
Oh, what would you say? Okay, so if I'm just talking to anybody that is trying to get and make their team milk, Well, um, you know, go out there and nothing is set in stone, right? There's, You know, if you it is the first season that you ever really last fall first time you have a big game about that somebody on your team that's been playing basketball for five years already.
Who cares, dude, like learn.
Listen to your coaches.
You know, it's you.
Look back because, you know, if I try and compare Villanova's in my middle school scene, that's totally different levels.
But every level counts.
You know you can't skip steps can jump to conclusions.
Um, it's a long ride.
And if you're upset about something, you know, get mad screen go cry it out. Right.
Get frustrated by yourself and then come back and get yourself together and go prove it to people.
If they're doubting you are putting you down or, um, you know, you can dribble a basketball going.
You two have been teachers.
So how to dribble a basketball? Yeah.
So lastly, what is your favorite current player in both the MBA and WNBF? Um, so for the WNBA, Um, I would say, you know, obviously I love Elena Della Donne from Delaware from my high school, uh, love Diana Taurasi.
But she left the WNBA, and I don't know if the WNBA's season is going to happen this year.
Um, but, you know, at the same time, I'm interested to cease to bring a i n s que come? Yeah, this year.
So I think a lot of things are changing.
I actually think the WNBA's might be a little different in terms of style.
Um, I'm seeing a lot more guards come into the league, which I love.
And, um, you know, you re gay Guma wall A I love, um, Natasha Cloud.
I think she's a great point guard for the Washington Mystics.
Christy Tolliver in L.
You know, I think there's a lot of great people, a lot of people Briana Stewart who she's coming back, you know, strong and healthy.
So I like it's more so, you know, I can't find one player that has it all.
Yes, in the in the WNBA.
You know, I think the closest one would be like Seubert and dinosaur.
All see, um, yeah, and ah, a couple posts back in the day.
Oh, man, this is even harder.
But, um, I love washing G. Honest.
I think he's changed the game tremendously.
Yeah, I love Steph Curry.
Um and you know, you're like like So when people say like, Oh, this is my favorite player And this is my favorite player only it's just like you're limiting yourself.
Doing it's like it's like you open a book and you only read the person cover because you only like the first chapter and you don't even go on to read the rest of the book.
It's like every chapter is gonna be different and give you something different.
That's gonna be on value.
So it's like Jonah's and stuff.
Totally different players.
But you have a drink on you.
Well, lebron, obviously, um, I love Curries, handles.
I mean, come on.
And the, you know, Joel and Simmons love my sixers.
Yeah, I bet then seven something.
Truth is like this.
And you know what? Like to each his own, right? But, you know, do you think he can't shoot because people think you can shoot threes, but he can't.
He just going look, and he doesn't need you, right? If I hear anybody who was a part of sports player, coach, athlete or player, coach, fan, broadcaster, reporter, right, if somebody says you can't shoot, I think that as a I find that as an insult.
I don't find that as Oh, you know he can't shoot.
It's like a car that just doesn't turn on right.
You're either gonna fix it or buy a new car, right? That can work.
So all mass ballplayers should be able to shoot and develop a great shot.
It's not difficult, right? If you just remain consistent and directly, Um, sorry.
You know, it's like, why isn't this happening? And he's great at what he does.
But why limit your so Yeah.
Gee, honest, you can't let him drive, and you can't let him shoot.
How are you going to guard? Spend some things you can take off for eight.
If somebody guarded me for fetal, gave me four feet of space.
I don't I do insulted.
So that's just like the competitive nature of the sport that I don't think a lot of people will actually say or bring out.
Yeah, And that's what, like you and all players that have such range when when they get tightly covered every time there behind that three point line.
Well, if your cover behind the three point line, you definitely cover it, you know, hasn't mentioned them, like shoot it. Yeah, exactly.
If you're open because right now you're they love to guard are these players that can shoot.
So anyway, this was a great interview with Adriana Han again.
Tremendous Villanova basketball player.
She still, to this day holds the Big East record for three pointers made.
That is definitely impressive, so we'll let a jury on a plug in her social media.
She is active again, trying to get into the business side of things as well as continuing.
Playing basketball in training begins to be great. As good as a basketball.
Clara, she was So, uh, we'll let you up, you know, social media and everything.
Um, so on my people who are not in Delaware in Billy area stay up to date with on hoops stuff this summer.
Because even if I can't physically work with you, right, I'm gonna be posting drills and knowledge about the game and just things that you can prepare yourself to get better, right? I want everybody to get better.
Um, you know, follow me on social media.
Obviously, at a juror on a Han, um, I will be uploading a website as well, which will include all my information on YouTube.
I think you guys out there, like, if you're in middle school going into high school, you know, start creating professional networks like a lengthen.
Um, you know, start thinking about how would I create a resume? Maybe right.
It sounds crazier in high school, but challenge yourself right? Put yourself in these positions like people are making money off of video games and things like that.
So Would you rather teach yourself how to be better at video games? Or would you rather, you know, find out who you really are and stop trying to figure out what other people are doing that works for them.
Find out what works for you.
Yeah, and, Ah, you know, Isaac, I think you do a really great job on SportsCastr.

Villanova basketball player Adriana
