Say hello to Sasha Sims!

Junior forward Sasha Sims fills us in on how important this second half of the season is to her and her teammates and just how special it could turn out to be…

The very best thing about winter break ending and school starting back is the start of conference play. As a team we have worked very hard and have been preparing specifically for conference and we are excited that the time has come. Second semester always seems to fly by very fast so we already cherish every moment and every game like it is our last. We remind ourselves often that basketball doesn’t last forever and as long as you are an abled body and have the capability of playing this game then we will do it to the best of our ability. I think sometimes we surprise ourselves on how great we can be as a team and there are also times where we can be our own worst enemy.  But all in all, 2013 has great things in store for our team and we are very excited about what is to come our way.

One of our current records that we look forward to building on is our home game winning streak which is at 12 as well as our 9 game win streak that we have going for the season. My teammates and I have all had the grand opportunity to be a part of many history making moments in our careers and we  just want to continue to do so. Win streaks are something that can quickly change but we work hard every day to be sure that we always put ourselves in the best position to win. We are all humbled by the many blessings that have found us over the years and we continue to hope for many more.

This past weekend we played USC Upstate and ETSU – thank God this road trip is over! The fact we played a game in which the roof was leaking and ETSU personnel had to constantly keep wiping the floor while the game was being played was a fitting end to this painfully long road trip. However,
even with that bit of adversity at the end of the day we won at ETSU for the first time in school history. I am proud to be a part of another first for the
Hatters.

I think that the scariest thing for me personally is that I will be a senior once this year is over, seems like just yesterday I was a confused lone freshman messing up plays and not knowing what my next move was. I’m glad those days are over but I can honestly say that I’m not sure if I’m ready for it to come to an end either. Until then, I’m just going to keep my eyes on this championship that my
teammates and I are hungry for.
