Next up in the “Inside the Herd” series will be freshman Kaylee Cotton. Cotton comes from Stearns, Kentucky where she played guard at McCreary Central High School.
What’s been the biggest difference between high school and college basketball so far?
“I haven’t actually been able to participate in any practices or anything because of my knee, but it’s so much more structured. At our high school practices you would just go out there and shoot and slowly get into things, but here everything is so laid out for you. You know exactly what’s going to happen.”
What’s been the biggest off-court difference between the two?
“I like that every day is not the same. Every day is different here. In high school every day is the same routine.”
What are some goals you have for the season?
“My first goal is to get over this injury. I need to get completely healthy first. As for the team, I want us to be more successful than we have been in the past. I think everyone new that has come in will be a great asset to the girls that are already here.”
What off-court hobbies do you have?
“I mostly just hang out with the girls.”
Coach Brown’s thoughts on Kaylee:
“We’re finally getting her healthy. What she brings is scoring. She scored a lot of points in high school. She shares the ball well. It’s going to be fun to get her on the floor.”
