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
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
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
