Athletes of the Week

Jeanelle Adams

After taking a few years off from playing, how has coming back into the intercollegiate scene changed?
It’s hard to say how the college scene has changed because there is a new coach. Also, I’m playing with a completely different group of girls from the group in my freshmen year, and we’re in a unique situation with only eight girls on the team. With only eight girls, it is a lot more physically demanding.What has been the best “team moment” so far this season?
I’m not really sure. I was out for the first six games of the season, so I missed a lot of on-court stuff. I guess personally, I think the day the volleyball girls joined us was a great moment because we could finally have a full practice!

What is your favorite offensive move? Why?
I love to drive and dish, but my favorite individual offensive move would have to be the spin. It’s a quick change of direction, giving you a step on the defense and it works most of the time.

If you had the chance to play basketball with any professional player, who would you want to play with and why?
I would have to say Michael Jordan. I’m not a huge fan of professional basketball, but I always looked forward to watching Bulls games back when he played.

If you could change one NCAA basketball rule, what would it be and why?
It would definitely have to be their rules on headbands and pre-wrap. They are so strict about the color and material and the entire team having to match. I just don’t see why what we wear in our hair matters so much.
