Interviews with Landon Milbourne and Adrian Bowie

The writers over at Testudo Times recently had the chance to interview Landon Milbourne (2006-10) and Adrian Bowie (2007-11) on their playing careers over in Europe:

First up, the interview with Landon Milbourne, who spent last season with Panionios in Greek's top division:
It's just different, because, you know, different cultures, different ways of living. As far as basketball is concerned, there's not too much different, you've just got a new group of teammates every year, another coach and you have to adjust to him. But for the most part, you know, you just try to make the best out of it and come home with some wins. [...]

In Greece the basketball culture is real strong, stronger than it was in France. [Panionios] had a real good history in basketball, the people knew a lot about basketball, so they were really, really supportive and it was a real fun year.

Next, Adrian Bowie talks about his season in Germany with the Herten Lions:
My experience playing in Europe was a lot of fun and learning at the same time. Different role then playing at Maryland. I was the scorer on the team and I enjoyed the role. [...]

I am not returning to the Lions next year. Looking to move up to higher league in another country. Just trying to play against the best.
