What got you into the game of basketball?
I started basketball when I was in sixth grade, but I was doing dance before. When I first came to school I was dancing, and coach was like, “You’re too tall to be dancing; I’m going to put you at center.” So I decided to come to the tryout and made JV — wasn’t really satisfied by that, but I kept working and did a lot more training because I really, really started liking basketball.
