The third-year veteran wants the team to realize it doesn’t need to trade for a scoring threat off the bench. He’s determined to fulfill that role. “I’m here to compete,” Korkmaz said. “I know that nobody is giving you a jersey and saying, ‘Hey come in and play.’ You have to come get it. “So I know that whenever I step on the court, I’m stepping on the court with that mentality. … Right now, I’m fighting for my jersey.”
“For us, it doesn’t matter who our opponent is, because we are trying to be ourselves. We have a lot of young players, a lot of experienced players, when we step into the court we wanna beat whoever we play against. The USA has a lot of players who can change the game. Today, the game was in our hands. We need to build confidence and be proud of this game”, said Korkmaz. “It really hurts. When the game goes to overtime, it doesn’t matter with how many points you lose. For us the most important thing is to put this game behind and focus on the game against Czech Republic”, he added.
