Q: How's the season going so far? 
A: We’ve been struggling this season but we’re looking better as we are getting towards sections. We have so much potential on our team. We are barley scraping the surface so state is still the goal.

Q: How have you been playing?
A: I’ve been playing good, shots have been falling and just pushing the tempo. Competing on defense and the glass every possession has been huge for me and for our team. Having great guards than can find me and make me better has been a blessing.

Q: Like you said you guys as a team have been struggling, but coming up you got St. Croix Prep who's undefeated. Not trying to apply any pressure, but have you guys mentally prepared for the rematch?
A: I think our entire team is hungry. I don’t think we’ve played our best basketball yet as a team and I think Tuesday night will be a great time for us to show what we can do. I think a lot of people have counted us out but we’re battle tested.

Q: How's recruiting going for you?
A: Recruiting been going well. I recently got an offer from Lake Region State during a visit and loved the coaching staff there. I’ve got a school in Rochester, NY looking at me and a couple other Division 3 schools.
