- What is your favorite basketball memory? It felt good when we made it to the first round of the playoffs last year, because Emerald Girls haven’t been to the playoffs since 2008.
- You play all positions on the floor, what is your favorite and why? I play all 1-5 positions on the floor, but my favorite of them all is playing the 3 because i can either shoot the ball or back my defender down into the post.
