A: I would move the (WIAA) state tournament back to Madison.

Q: What is the greatest invention in the past 50 years?

A: The Internet and how easily accessible it has become.

Q: Congrats! You just won two VIP tickets to see any musical artist of your choice. Whom would you see and whom would you take with you?

Q: What are your plans for college? Do you plan on playing hoops? What will be your major?

A: I have recently been accepted into UW-Madison and accepted into both the athletic training progam and doctorate of physical therapy program at Marquette University. I have not yet decided which university I will attend. Although I do not plan on playing basketball at the collegiate level, basketball will always be a part of my life.
