What is your favorite basketball memory?
Being coached by my grandpa senior year.
What is your favorite sport besides basketball?
What do you like to do when you are not playing basketball?
Do you have a nickname? How did you get your nickname?
A lot of my friends call me Connie because it's my middle name.
Why did you choose Utah? What is the best thing about Utah?
Pac-12! I like living in Salt Lake and I have family here.
Who has been the biggest influence in your life and why?
There have been a lot of major influences in my life but if I have to choose, I would choose my mom. She is a great example of how a woman/mom/friend should be and act.
My favorite thing about Salt Lake City is:
My family is close by.
The teammate I most admire is who, and why?
Janita Badon, because she is our only senior and does a great job of being a leader. She also is always willing to help me improve and pushes me to play my hardest.
What do you like best about Coach Levrets?
That he is always interested in our lives outside of basketball and is always helping us to be our best.
What are your goals for this year?
To improve in shooting, all-around.
What are your pregame superstitions?
I wear my wristband right before I go out to play. In high school, my assistant coach would wear my wristband for good luck and we always said a team prayer in a circle with our right foot inside the circle.
What is your major and what do you want to do after you graduate?
I am undecided but I would love to become a national geographer.
