I like to relax and listen to music. I used to ride horseback.

Storm from X-men.

What's your favorite cereal and what's your typical breakfast?
I don't really like cereal but if I eat it, it's usually the one with the most sugar. I usually eat a bagel or yogurt with a granola bar for breakfast.

Do you have any pre-game rituals/ superstitions?
I use the restroom three times before the game.

Have fun, remember to stop and enjoy what you're doing.

My great athletic moment was:
When I finally began to understand how to play basketball as a sophomore in high school.

What was your most embarrassing moment on the court?
At practice I was running for a long pass and it was overthrown and I ran into the wall, bounced off, fell down and slide to the free throw line.

What is your earliest memory of playing basketball?
I didn't start playing until 7th grade.

What has been your most inspiring moment on the court?
The most inspiring thing is when your team starts to click, someone makes a tough shot or gets a steal or block.
