What makes your crowd unique?

“Our crowd is awesome every game and they always get us hype with all their crazy themes and crazy chants it’s just fun to hear. We always have a lot of students at our games which gets us more pumped to play.”

What is a memorable thing that they’ve done that you will always remember?

“I will always remember against Roosevelt our former coach when I hit the game winning shot and the crowd got so hype that they ran on the floor but there was like .4 on the clock left and we got technical and they won by free throws.”

Who is the toughest player you can recall playing against in South Dakota basketball and why?

“The toughest player I’ve played against is probably Sam Siganos, he was really smooth with his moves and he played very smart.”

Who is your biggest rival and what about them makes the rivalry both heated and memorable?

“Our biggest rival is Rapid City Central because they are on the other side of town! We’ve always had a rivalry with them in every sport and those games bring the biggest crowd and it’s just a fun environment to be in.”

Who is your favorite basketball player in the world and why?

“My favorite basketball player is Damian Lillard because I love how smooth he plays, and a really good scorer and I like how he runs his team.”

What brand of gear or type of gear are you partial to?

“My gear would be Jordan, but only the retro stuff for shoes anyways, I love how they look and how comfortable they are.”
