Q: What age did you start playing basketball?

A: I started playing at five years old, and I’ve been playing ever since.

Q: When was it that you knew you wanted to play basketball at the college level?

A: Probably then [at five years old], to be honest. I watched “Space Jam” and that’s what won basketball for me, and so then after that I decided that I wanted to play college and play in the NBA one day.

Q: What is your favorite part of basketball?

A: My favorite part is the brotherhood that you build, the relationships you build, the influence you can make on people and being an inspiration to people who get to watch you play, and just being a good person.

Q: Do you have any pregame rituals?

A: First, I wake up, and I have a really big breakfast. I go to the gym and get up some shots, and then I always eat steak before the games and listen to music.

Q: What personal growth have you seen this season so far?

A: Maturity just as a leader, not getting as frustrated as easy, and trying to be the best player I can be, working hard every single day and trying to get better.

Q: What are you looking forward to for the rest of the season?

A: Winning out, getting to the playoffs and making a run; enjoying it with these guys. It’s my last year, so just being able to play with these guys and build relationships and make sure that the young guys have fun and have somebody to look at so when they’re seniors they can understand how this thing works.
