How has your experience been at SWOCC so far?
So far I've loved being at SWOCC. It's been a really fun experience on and off of the court. At times I do get a little homesick but it's nothing I can't handle.
What is your favorite thing about being at SWOCC?
My favorite thing about being at SWOCC is definitely the friendships I've made. I've gotten close with a lot of my teammates and I think that carries over to good chemistry on the basketball court.
What is your expectation for yourself and your team this year?
I'm really excited about this team. We have the missing pieces this year that we didn't have last year. For myself, I have been working on being a more consistent shooter and getting stronger.
What can you bring to a university as a JUCO transfer?
I can bring some maturity with having already played college basketball. I have improved a lot of aspects in my game and my strength. I believe if a university gave me a chance I could step in and contribute right away.
What is the best part about your game?
I think it's being a leader on the court and also shooting under pressure.
