Plymouth forward Anthony Rowe has revealed that he has been asked to adjust his style of play to fit in with Coach Gavin Love’s plans for next season.
Rowe, 26, recently agreed to play for the Raiders for a fourth season and, after a season hampered by injuries, coach Love is looking to utilise Rowe’s talent in an assault on the BBL next season.
Rowe said: “Coach said he thought I had a good season and wants to see me add other aspects to my game.
“He asked me to add things like extend the range on my shot and maybe look at adding a counter move on offence, to use if my initial move doesn’t work.”
The forward admitted his style of play maybe becoming predictable and he needs to add versatility to the game, telling thisisdevon.co.uk: “Coach has asked me to bring something else to the table now. This has been my third season in the BBL and a lot of people know how I play, so it gets more difficult as the years go on.”
Rowe understands last season was difficult because of the injuries he suffered but still felt as though he played his part: “I’m not going to lie, it was hard for me to be as consistently dominant as I can be.
“I had a lot of bad luck with injuries and really struggled, and missed my first games as a professional last season. It was a rollercoaster.
“If someone said I had a bad season, I would disagree, because I know I still had big games and did all I could.
“The fans in Plymouth know me and know I’m going to battle regardless.”
Rowe will return to the US over the summer to get married to his fiancée Katie but also to spend time working on his game at North Georgia University, a place where he previously spent four years learning his trade as a Basketball player.
