An Interview with Kelsey Langston, the Athlete of the Week from Loyola basketball squad

Kelsey Langston is a senior guard for the 34-0 Ramblers. She is a three-year varsity starter.

1. Do you might have any pregame rituals or superstitions?

Me and Paige (Engels) have a handshake we do on the bench after we’re the last two to be called out (pregame). That’s form of the just one.

2. What do you hope to do next 12 months?

After this season, I’m occurring some visits. I’m hoping to play college basketball. If it’s at Cornell, I’d be super excited.

3. What’s your favorite thing to do off the court?

I might say I like hanging out with my friends or staying in with my family. I actually like to babysit. I still babysit for a few families from grade school (St. Francis Xavier in Wilmette).

4. Who’s your favorite athlete?

Caitlin Clark (University of Iowa basketball). She’s really inspiring. People all the time discuss her offense but not that she’s a extremely good defender. And I actually just like the point guard for Purdue (Braden Smith). I actually like his game.

5. When you could play one other sport, what would it not be?

I might probably say soccer or lacrosse. I played soccer up until freshman 12 months. I might say I’m pretty fast. So any sport where there’s running, any of those.

6. What’s the most effective part of getting a twin brother (Kenny Langston)?

I might say our life is a continuing competition. We’re all the time one another’s biggest fan, but all the time competing, so it’s all the time fun.

7. What’s the hardest thing about having a twin brother?

Fighting over the automotive. It’s really hard to plan that. When one person desires to take the automotive or who gets to take the automotive for the night.

8. When you’re in Walgreens with a pair bucks, what are you purchasing?

I might say I like Propel (kiwi or grape) and doubtless anything with chocolate — chocolate-covered pretzels or dark chocolate caramels.

9. What’s something people don’t learn about you?

I lived in (Washington) D.C. for six years, from first grade until sixth grade. Not everyone knows that.

10. What are the late-season keys to attending to where you should be — a state championship?

We just must settle into the sport from tipoff and in addition just lean on one another. All of us have great chemistry on and off the ball. We trust one another. Our staple is our defense. The quicker we settle in on defense, the better it’s to get a groove going. For this run, now we have to lock in on defense from the tipoff.
