How would you describe the team’s recent success?

“We had a slow start with East Kentwood, but [we] rebounded and have been playing great basketball ever since. We play fast-paced and as a team, which is where all of our success has come from.”

What is one area you feel like you can improve personally?

“I would say just becoming a better teammate and player on the floor in general. These both just come with experience and playing time, and I’m excited to see where my time on the court brings me.”

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

“The best part of our team is our defensive intensity. This leads to easy buckets on the other end and a great boost of energy on both ends.”

What has been the best part of the season?

“Our first game was against EK, then the next day we went up to Traverse City Central and got the win, which was a great feeling. This was definitely one of my favorite basketball experiences, and the night overall was just a blast.”
