This edition of Five Questions is with Aneisha Scott. The uber talented 2025 Guard plays club with The City 2025 & will be a Sophomore this season at DeLaSalle High School (MN). Thanks for your time Aneisha!

 

1) This summer you had the opportunity to attend, among other events, Wisconsin Elite Camp. What was your experience like at the DI camp and what were some of the things you enjoyed most about it and learned while there?
 
It was fun! I got a chance to compete against great competition. Learn from players who were working the camp and get several hours with the coaches. I got a good sense of the communication, intensity, and attention to detail they are looking for. I got a chance to play in the camp all-star game and it was a great experience.  
 
 
2) You recently concluded your club season with The City 2025. What were some of your favorite memories, both on and off the court, from this past season?
 
From this past season, my favorite memory on the court would be a buzzer-beater game-winner I hit in Iowa against All Iowa Attack 16u. A memory off the court would be hanging out with my teammates on the road out of town after the games and doing fun things like arcades, bowling, and an escape room.
 
 
3) As a Freshman at DeLaSalle you averaged better than 7 PPG for a 22 win team. What are some of your individual and team goals for the 2022-23 season?
 
My individual goals for this high school season would be to embrace my leadership role and have a more balanced attack. I am striving to double my scoring and assists from last year and to stay consistent with my steals and rebounds. For team goals, I want us to play together, bond more on and off the court, and keep pushing each other. I hope that we can have an opportunity to be in the section's championship game again and have an opportunity to make State! We missed it last year by a basket! 
 
 
4) Besides being a Point Guard, you are also a track athlete. How do you feel being a multi-sport athlete benefits you, and are there also some times where you feel a time crunch in the spring between track and basketball?
 
Joining track helped me with basketball for sure and I also found another passion. I made state this year and placed in the 4x1. The conditioning and competition really helped my game. It was very hard balancing both. There were times I had basketball workouts in the morning, a track meet in the afternoon, and then AAU practice at night. Also, I had to miss some practices and team stuff for the state meets. I had to manage a few nicks ane bruises along the way. It forced me to focus on rest, recovery, and my nutrition which was beneficial. 
 
 
5) You are clearly incredibly passionate about basketball. Who are some of the players you look at as role models and what are some of the things about those individuals that you admire?
 
When I was in the 4th and 5th grade I played up a few years at The Hospitality House in North Minneapolis and NuNu Agara was my teammate. She was so good, and she was a great leader and teammate. Seeing her now take off knowing that we came from the same place is special. Her commitment to Standford and making the USA team was so dope! I also look up to Jada Williams, watching her work ethic and how hard she goes is inspiring.
