My favorite music is... anything by Kanye, Lil Wayne, and I am becoming a huge J. Cole fan!

My advice to a future Tommie basketball player is... come in ready to work your butt off but know that it is worth it!

My favorite thing about this team is... Our ability to laugh with each other in any situation, and that we pick each other up.
