* your favorite motto

JC: “I like to work hard.”

* superstitions before games

JC: “No, not really, I just like to relax before games.”

* how sports has impacted your life

JC: “Sports is my life. Without basketball, I don’t know what I would be doing.”

* what keeps you motivated in sports

JC: “I want to keep working hard to be the best basketball player I can be.”

* a failure that you experienced, which has made you a better athlete today

JC: “A lot of my family haven’t been able to experience anything like this. I don’t want to lose this opportunity. So, I wake up every day to make my life better.”

* going to Oak Ridge Academy

JC: “Academically, its a really good school. They’re very helpful in the classroom. You get all the help you need in the classroom.”

* why did you choose Xavier

JC: “I chose Xavier, because of the atmosphere and the coaching staff. The players are really good guys, as well. I was told I could play a lot as a freshman.”

* playing for coach Chris Mack next year

JC: “I’m looking forward to it. I think coach Mack is a really good coach, so I’m ready to get out there and learn from him. He will teach me a lot.”

* having two Xavier coaches at the PrimeTime Shootout to watch you

JC: “They told me they were going to come out. I expected them to be here, so I had to step up my game. I liked the fact that they were here to watch me.”
