What is the biggest difference between freshman basketball and JV basketball?

“The biggest difference between freshman year and this year is definitely having our new coach. Our old coach coached us in very different ways than our new coach does. We play different defense and even have some new plays. Besides that and having a couple of new people on the team, it is pretty similar.”

What would you say is the strongest part of this team?

“The strongest part about our team this year is probably our rebounding. Our new coach emphasizes boxing out even if you are a guard.”

What did it feel like to hit the game-winning shot against Traverse City Central earlier in the year?

“It felt great to hit the shot versus TCC. They had a very good team, and it was a hard-fought game which made the shot even more special.”

What are a couple of quotes that help motivate you?

“‘You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take,’- Michael Jordan and, ‘Checks over stripes, that’s what I like,’-Drake”
