What has been the most difficult part about adjusting to the game at a college level? It's been all about making quicker decisions. Everything about the game is different; the tempo is quicker. Being an effective communicator is really necessary on the court. I've been here since June, so the overall adjustment to the team has been pretty smooth. The team has a great dynamic, and we all have a mutual respect for one another. We have good camaraderie, and good chemistry both on and off the court.
How has the transition academically been? It's been good. It's all about managing your time and staying focused. Having class later in the day is harder too, especially because it wasn't like that in high school, so it's really having to adjust to a whole new schedule and level of difficulty in regards to the difficulty of classes.
What are you most excited about this season? I'm just really excited to play. We are a younger team this year with a lot of new freshmen. We are energetic and excited to all be together. It will be good to show everyone that even though we are freshmen we can still get the job done and play well. I'm really looking forward to showing the fans what we've all been working on, and putting all of the hard work to the test.
What is your favorite part about the team? We are always laughing and joking around. No matter what it is, we can always find humor and a reason to laugh. It can be anything from conversations, to funny videos and social media. The majority of the time spent off the court is filled with bonding and laughter.
