She’Cara Humphrey Interview with Schuyler Wick
With a new Coach in for the 2nd year, what is it like having him compared to Coach Richards?
With last year being Coach Baker’s first year, you could see a complete difference. Coach Baker has that complete experience at all levels at basketball. He’s been coaching for 20 years, you can tell the experience that he has compared to Coach Richard.
Do you like him and is he a good fit for the team and its future?
Yeah! Even just last year we set records. I definitely think he will be around for a long time. He is changing the program around. Women’s basketball is going to have a different look now, thanks to Coach Baker.
Do you like his Baker’s coaching style?
I do a lot. When I first met him he said, “There are players who think they’re good and players who know they’re good.” Before he came in, I thought I was good but ever since he came in my mind set have been like, him teaching me and telling me everything he knows and making me a better player. Now I know I’m good.
Have you seen a change in your team from when Coach Richards was here compared to Coach Baker?
It’s kind of a hard question because when Coach Baker came in there were only 3 people who had been with Coach Richards. It was a completely new team when Coach Baker came in. Had he been here with the old team we had with Coach Richards, I’m sure there would have been a lot of changes. We had a good team then, we should have a good coach to lead us to a championship.
Last year you started all 27 games with 10.6 points per game, 2nd most on the team per game. And 5.6 rebounds per game, 2nd most on the team. How do you feel about last season?
I think I had a good season, I think what I did, helped us as a whole. I had my teammates pushing me in practice, the coaches pushing all of use in practice. I can’t even take full credit for all of it, because it hadn’t been for my teammates or my coach I probably hadn’t of been 2nd lead in scoring and rebounds. So I definitely think the teammates had a role in it and pushing me and helping me get better.
How close is the team?
Some teams with a lot of girls have a lot of drama, this year there was none. This is surprising dealing with a lot of girls. When we first came in August, we hung out before school started, all during pre-season. And we still hang out now; we are literally with each other all the time, even outside of practice
Is there goo chemistry on and off the court?
I think it’s a little different trying to find on court chemistry vs. off court chemistry. But I think are off court chemistry will help us find it on the court.
