Have you had your 15 min yet   Yes, my freshmen year when we played Middle Tennessee... I think is over with now... I should just pack it up


Favorite class at UNT   Any class with Dr. Turner


What was the last class that made you think   My Race and Ethnicity class... lots of controversial issues


Breakfast of champions   Eggs, sausage, links, hash browns, I don’t know why, but mashed potatoes, biscuits and gravy, grape juice, little bit of apple juice and a little bit of orange juice, and a muffin... wait, two muffins  


If you didn’t have practice then where would you be   Playing basketball somewhere


Favorite or Underdog   the underdog... have to be the underdog... people can’t see me coming and I go under the radar and then POP!

How does your coach motivate you   Coach Russell is all about business...that is one person I have really learned a lot from since I have been up here... no matter what is thrown his way he gets it done some way some how.
