5 Questions with LOGAN SMITH

How would you describe this team?
I would describe this team as together and competitive, we always are playing together no matter what and we don’t like to lose we all have a competitive edge each night we take the court.

What is a lesson you learned this season?
The season goes quicker than you think, we are towards the end of the season already and it seemed like it went by in the blink of an eye.

What is your favorite moment from this season?
My favorite moment of the season so far would be our win against Unity at their place because it locked up our chance at the first outright conference championship in SJO history in basketball.

What is a superstition you have before a game?
For warmups we all go in the same order every game, then we come back into the locker room in the same order, then finally when we run back out we all run in the same order.

What has the fan support been like this season?
The fan support has meant a lot fans don’t have to travel with us to away games but they make the road trip and make away games feel more like home games with their energy so it’s really nice having their support.
