Lindsay Forsberg - DePaul

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
We recently had the chance to speak with DePaul University guard Lindsay Forsberg.  The 5-9 scorer appeared in all 29 games as a freshman, and finished 3rd on the team in assists, and 4th in 3-pointers. 

1)    Could you tell us a little bit about why you chose to attend DePaul after your decorated career at Jenks H.S.(Tulsa, OK)?
 
I liked the coaching staff, and DePaul offers an excellent education.

 
2)    Coach Doug Bruno has had a very successful stint at DePaul including 7 NCAA tourney appearances.  What type of coaching style does Coach Bruno have?
 
He knows so much about the game. I love the way he coaches, because he's always pushing you to achieve high standards he has set for you. We work hard pre-season and post-season as well, which I strongly agree with.

 
3)    Last year, the team got off to a 15-9 start before losing its last 5 games.  Is there anything you can attribute the struggles at the end of the season to?
 
We struggled all year long with injuries. We played many games with only 8 players, 3 being freshmen.

 
4)    It had to be disappointing for Lenae Williams, one of the best players in DePaul history, to go out that way.  Regardless, Lenae scored over 2,000 points, holds the conference records in 3-point shooting, and was drafted 18th overall by the Detroit Shock, for whom she has played 18 games for this season.  What can you tell us about Lenae?  Do you dream of one day following her into the WNBA?
 
Lenae is a special player and she has a gift for shooting. It was great being able to play with her because I knew if I passed her the ball for the 3 she'd knock it down. As for the WNBA, it depends if there is any room for 5'5" point guards.

 
5)    You're somewhat of a three-point gunner yourself.  Could you describe your game to us?  Is anything special you've been working on over summer? 
  
I love playing the role of point guard. I love to throw dimes and have people score. it's a great feeling. I shoot 3's, but I'd like it to become more of a threat off the dribble. I've been working on the strength of my left hand to attack the basket.

 
6)    Early on, you scored 14 vs. Arkansas State, and later you scored 9 in a close lose to 2nd ranked Tennessee.  Is there one game that sticks out as your best performance last year?  Could you tell us what made it so special?
 
I liked my performance against Iowa State which we lost by 2 in the Coaches vs. Cancer tournament in Ames.  I subbed into the game and nailed a 3 right away. I had three 3's in that game at crucial points. We didn't come out with the victory, but it was the first game my parents got to see, so it was important to me.  They were only able to make it to 5 games last season.

 
7)     DePaul made it to the NIT last year for the 3rd year in a row (losing to Michigan State).  Do you think next year's team, which returns a lot of young players with experience, can get back to the NCAA tournament?
 
Definitely. That's my goal, and I think the other girls are right there with me.  we're ready to fight for it.

 
8)    Do you know anything about this year's recruits?  Had a chance to play with them?
 
I don't know too much. I just know we have 6 freshmen coming in, and they all have height.

 
9)  Is there anything special you'd like to tell DePaul fans, and other hoop fans around the country?
 
Everyone should play basketball at some point in their lives.  It's a ton of fun, and you learn a lot about yourself.
 
On behalf of CollegeHoopsNet, I'd like to thank Lindsay for answering our questions.  We'd like to wish her, her family, and the team, the best of luck in the coming year.
