Inside the Hall had a chance to catch up with 2014 Evansville Bosse freshman Jaquan Lyle earlier this afternoon. Lyle finished his first varsity season with averages of 15.6 points per game and 7.5 rebounds per game.

(You can watch HD video of Lyle against Washington from Saturday at this link.)

Here’s a transcript of what the dynamic freshman had to say about Bosse’s season, his recruitment and more:

On his accomplishments as an individual and a team his freshman season:

“The goal was to win the sectional championship and we did that. Then we made bigger goals. But I’m very happy with the way we ended.”

On what he can take from Saturday’s loss to Washington in the regional:

“I’ve got to start moving more without the ball. I didn’t move as much without the ball. But mostly, my shot wasn’t going in. My pull up jumper off the dribble, too.”

On stepping into a big role at Bosse as a freshman and whether he felt pressure:

“I kept my composure most of the year. For me, playing basketball against anybody is hard, but I just come into the game thinking I’m better than everybody. That’s just the way I am. I’m competitive like that so I just think that nobody can guard me.”

On how he’s handling the recruiting process thus far:

“My family and coaches, we talk about it all the time. I’m probably going to make my decision late sophomore or early junior year.”

On Indiana:

“It’s a good school and a good coach.”
