Lindsay Richards Q-and-A

Feb. 8, 2005 visited recently with junior guard Lindsay Richards from Barrington, IL. Here’s a piece of that conversation.

If you had a pizza named after you, what would be your toppings?
“First of all, it would have to be deep dish (Chicago style), with pepperoni, green peppers, black olives and mushrooms.”

If you were to enter a karaoke contest right now, which song would you sing to claim the title?
“Maria Carey’s song Fantasy is sure to win. I might even recruit Tiffany Reedy to be a back-up singer. After all, it did earn me an `A’ in the class Basic Acting last year. Maria Carey has always been one of my favorite singers.”

Who makes you laugh the most of the team?
“That title would have to go to Christobear, aka Chris Fitzgerald, our future head manager. His sarcastic attitude and dedication to our team during practice as a manager makes me laugh.

Which game show (past or present) is your favorite to watch?
“I’ve always enjoyed watching The Price is Right. I love that game `Cliffhanger’ where that guy yodels as he goes up the mountain.”

Other than Carver-Hawkeye Arena, which is your favorite arena to play in and why?
“I would have to say Williams Arena, aka `The Barn’. I love the atmosphere of old gyms and the crowd there is always fun. They really get your adrenaline pumping.”

What DVD and CD would you consider to be the most embarrassing in your collection?
“LFO, because of that Abercrombie & Fitch song. I liked it back in the day, but now, it’s horrible.”

If you could be a cartoon character, who would you be and why?
“I would be Jerry from the Tom and Jerry show because he always out-smarted Tom and he was cute.”

What is your favorite basketball book to read?
Wooden, A life time of observations and reflections on and off the court by Coach John Wooden and Steve Jamison.”
