Allison Mangieri- Q&A
When did you first start playing basketball?
Is there someone or some event that got you fired up about playing basketball?
My older sister Dorothy got me fired up about playing basketball.
What is your favorite basketball memory from grade school travel bb or from jh basketball?
When Chloe Anderson and I acted like we were in a Harry Potter game of Quidditch while on the court during a Junior Streaks game. Every time we scored we'd run by eachother and yell "2 points, gryffindor!!!" I don't know why this was so fuuny to us, but it was! We were ahead by a lot so we figured this was okay :)
So far in high school, what has been your favorite class, favorite teacher? What makes this course, this teacher good?
My favorite class so far would be Mr.Miller's World History II class. I like history and he taught the class well. As for my favorite teacher, that'd be Ms. Clay. She's fun to be around and her classes are never boring.
What was the biggest adjustment for you going from junior high to high school?
The class time was a big adjustment. It's crazy to think that in junior high we would sit in a class for only 45 minutes.
What is your favorite book ever? Why?
The Twilight Series! I don't read a whole lot, but when it came to these books..I would make time to read! Out of the four books, the first one, Twilight, was my favorite because it was filled with romance and suspense.
What is your favorite movie? Why?
Edward Scissorhands! I love Johnny Depp!
What is your favorite TV show?
Right now it's The Walking Dead.
What would we find on your playlist for your iPod?
Drake would definetly be on my playlist. Along with some country and whatever other songs are popular at the time.
What is on your Christmas wish list?
Clothes, shoes, and a body pillow! :)
If can go anywhere in Galesburg to eat, where do you choose, and what do you order?
El Rancherito! I usually get tacos with rice and beans.
What was your favorite bb experience this past summer?
Notre Dame camp! Despite the dorms not having air conditioning, it was so much fun hanging out with the team and just laughing about how hot we were. Plus the campus was amazing!
Who do you think has surprised you the most this season with how they have played?
Dani Teel. She's small for her position, yet aggressive and always plays with the same intensity which is awesome on her part. Every team needs someone like Dani ;)
How have you surprised yourself this year?
My attitude about myself as a player. I don't overthink things as much as I did last year. I've learned that you just got to play your game and do what you practice!
