Q: What brought you to Malone?

A: I think the Christian aspect of Malone, but also, honestly, Coach Mishler was a big reason of why I ended up at Malone.

Q: How long have you played basketball?

A: I would say I started playing competitively in third grade.

Q: What is your favorite season?

A: That’s actually tough because summer’s my favorite, but winter comes very close just because it’s basketball season in the winter.

Q: Do you have advice for fellow students and student athletes?

A: I would say some advice would be just, as a freshman, learning to manage your time efficiently and always go to class and just whenever you have free time make sure to use it in the best way that you can.

Q: In your opinion, what has been the best moment of the basketball season so far?

A: I would say probably  our first couple games in Indiana, because we beat two very good teams and also [because] we’ve had a lot of injuries this season, and that was one of the only times we had everybody together as a team.

Q: What do you enjoy most about playing basketball?

A: Being able to compete every day, and also, just having a great coach and great teammates here at Malone makes it really fun.

Q: Do you have any hobbies?

A: I used to play the piano a little bit. Honestly, in my free time I just like to sleep and eat and study, so I don’t have too many other hobbies except basketball.
