CN: How has Iowa State been so far?


AL: It's awesome; I'm enjoying it so much. It's so much fun being with all the girls, practicing every day, and getting accustomed to everything.


CN: Do you find that the seniors have been doing a lot to help you guys?


AL: The seniors have been awesome this year. [Medders, Ronhovde, and Reinert] have so much knowledge and help us out with whatever we want. They are really good leaders and are great to look up to.


CN: What is it like playing basketball in Hilton Coliseum compared to where you have played in the past?


AL: It's a lot more fun here and there's a lot more excitement around girls' basketball. I've never been in a place that's this supportive back home or anywhere. It's nice to be somewhere that girls' basketball is so supported and has so many fans.


CN: Is the support for the program a big reason why you chose Iowa State?


AL: The people in Iowa, the coaches and players, and the support are what won me over.


CN: Do you anticipate getting a fair amount of playing time this season?


AL: It's early season and we haven't started official practice yet, but I'm ready if they need me to play.


CN: Have you had to adjust your style of play from the way you played in Australia?


AL: I think we play a different style of game from International to American. The three-point line is further back and other little things like that are different. Overall, I didn't think I had to change as much as my brother did, but there are definitely some changes.


CN: What area of your game do you have to work on the most?


AL: Getting adjusted to the college style game and the pace of it. I think that's what I want to work on the most is going hard all the time and getting used to the pace.
