SWMOBasketball — How would you describe your game to people who haven’t seen you play?

Lynne — I do whatever it takes to win. Whether that requires me to score or take care of the ball or play good defense. 

SWMOBasketball — Tell us about your performance last week and what you were able to do that made the difference

Lynne — I knew coming into the game against Purdy it was going to be tough. I had to step up and knock down shots. 

SWMOBasketball — Do you think your hard work during the off-season is starting to pay off?

Lynne — I do believe working in the off season always pays off. My team worked super hard this summer got better on and off the court and it shows everyday. 

SWMOBasketball — What was your reaction when you learned you scored nine 3’s? Were you more excited to score all the points or get the win?

Lynne — Honestly I was surprised. I wasn’t even thinking about it during the game, all I was worried about was getting the win. That means more to me then scoring points. 

SWMOBasketball — Is there a specific matchup you are looking forward to playing against this season?

Lynne — I look forward to every game. Every opportunity to get to play basketball with my team is great. 

SWMOBasketball —  What are some things in your game you are still hoping to improve?

Lynne — I always have things to work on. Whether it be ball handling, blocking out, etc. everyday I try and get better. Same with my team, we come in and work hard every day at practice and it’s all starting to pay off.
