Exclusive Interview with Corey Allmond - Nov 19, 2015

Corey
Allmond
Eurobasket.com conducted its most recent interview with potentially one of the key components of a Saint John Mill Rats (NBL Canada) team that has revamped their roster for the 2015-16 season. Nicknamed the "D.C. Sniper" for his prowess from beyond the arc, Corey Allmond (6'2''-G-88, college: Sam Houston St., agency: G3) will bring a combination of experience and a solid resume to Harbour Station. Allmond played two years of NCAA Division I basketball at Sam Houston State, where he most notably put up 37 points with 11 three-pointers against a Kentucky Wildcats team fielding DeMarcus Cousins and John Wall at the Rupp Arena. At the professionally, he has been with multiple teams in the NBA Development League, ShenYang Dongjin (China), Vestelspor Manisa (Turkey), and AS de Sale (Morocco). The guard most recently spent a season in a Rochester RazorSharks (PBL) uniform, leading the team to an undefeated season as one of its very best players.

Three-pointers are obviously a major part of your game, but when did you first truly consider yourself a "sharpshooter"?

I first considered myself a "sharpshooter" back in college. I was top 10 in three-pointers a game and top 20, I believe, in percentage. Shot the ball really well in college, thanks to my teammates and coaches

Describe your 37-point performance at the Rupp Arena in 9. How has it shaped you as a player?


The game at Rupp of course is by far the best game ever, not only was it a big performance, but it was against some big-time competition, I'm not the same player I was in college. I feel I can score in more ways then just shooting threes, but the game at Rupp definitely gave me the confidence that I can play on the big stage.

What would you say has been the best on-court moment of your career outside of that performance?

Outside that performance, it's probably last season with the Rochester RazorSharks. I broke the most threes in a single game with 11 and had 43 points. And this all came after the passing of my grandfather.

How confident were you in playing professionally after leaving Sam Houston State? Where were you expecting to end up?

I was very confident. I felt like I could play at a high level on the big stage, and I still feel that way. But I'm more mature now and understand the game a lot better than I did my rookie season. Back then, I really got down on myself when I missed shots and it really showed, but now I just keep playing and always believe the next shot is going in. And just like every kid, I thought I can be a 12th guy on someone roster. In the NBA, every team need a shooter, but I'm only 6'1" at the shooting guard position, so I have to be more a scoring point.

So you have played pro in a couple different countries outside America. What has been your favorite one?

My favorite one would be China. Had a lot of fun out there with them guys and we was winning, we was like 7-0 before money problems happened with my team. I'm not sure exactly what happened, but back then in that league, the team with the best locals was going to win, and we had that until three of them stop getting paid, and we didn't win another game when they stop playing.

Adding on to that question, which international league has been the toughest in terms of skill level?

The toughest would be Turkey second division. It was tough for me to get in a rhythm, and I struggled from the field. But once again, I was young and it was my first time playing in Europe, but I'm working to get another shot over there if a team take a chance on me again. I promise they won't be sorry this time around. I'm so ready, but it's a process got to prove myself and hopefully I can do that this season in Canada

Based on what you have seen so far, how does the Premier Basketball League (PBL) compare with the NBL Canada?

To be honest, I don't think it does compare at all. The Canada league, to me, is by far a better league and better competition. No other team came close to the team we had last year. We was really good, honestly believe we would've gave D-League teams problems-we was really that good. And with the Canada league playing games against the D-League teams this year, don't think the PBL would ever get to that level, because it really only one good team and that's Rochester RazorSharks. They have the money and sponsorship to go get the best players. Other teams don't have that, it's not even a full season in the PBL. We only played like 16 games compared to NBL 40+ games. The PBL didn't even have playoffs, it was just the finals in which we won.

After an undefeated season with the Razorsharks under coach Rob Spon , how does it feel to join him with the Mill Rats? Did his move to Saint John motivate you to sign in the NBL Canada?

I feel great about joining coach Spon and trying to win another championship. He is a great coach-really focus on defense, and defense wins championships. You can't play if you don't play defense, and that's pretty much how all my coaches have been. And coach Spon let you play your game-that's what I like the most. You can just play basketball. Got to play smart and within the system, but you really can play, allow me to be aggressive all game. And at first I wasn't sure what I was going to do, but then I thought about my career, and I had a big season last year, but the PBL don't get that much respect, so I figured if I can do it again in a better league, then I will really get looked at again. So why not do it again with a coach that trust my game, trust me out there, knows my game. And I know what he wants, and what he looking for out there.

What kind of role do you think you will have for the Mill Rats this season?

I think I'm the shooter of course, the one that help space the floor. But imma show more than just shooting. I worked very hard this offseason, so imma be the scorer and the leader, always talking on defense and just helping out the younger guys through out the season so we all can be successful this season and really make a run at this championship.

What excites you the most for the upcoming season?


What excites me most is actually seeing the outcome of all the hardwork I put in this offseason and putting in now till I report to Canada. They say hard work pays off, so I'm excited to see it pay off this season, and I think it really will. I'm on a mission and won't be denied this season. So excited to get this season going.

Any advice for younger players about playing pro basketball overseas?

My only advice would be, of course, continue to work on your craft before practice and after practice every single day. But also, this business can be rough. I been released a few times but never gave up and never will, so just always and continue to knock on the door. Sooner or later, someone will answer, so that's what imma do. Keep grinding, keep working, and keep giving GOD all the glory, and just wait till it's my time.
