Rams Q&A with Britney Minor

February 6, 2009

Senior forward Britney Minor is in her second year at Colorado State, and has emerged as a leader both offensively and defensively for the Rams.

Britney MinorMinor joined the Rams after helping the Blinn Junior College (Texas) Buccaneers to back-to-back appearances in the regional finals. Minor is looking to help lead the Rams back to the top of the Mountain West Conference and improve their record with a fresh look. The Rams Basketball Report recently caught up with Britney to ask her a few questions:

Q: In your opinion what’s the biggest improvement you’ve seen so far from last season?
A: We’re a much stronger team defensively. Zone didn’t work last year, and this year’s man-to-man is much more effective. We’re also free offensively; we have the green light to do our own thing.

Q: What have you been most impressed with thus far?
A: Coming together as a team including our coaches. We’re all on the same page.

Q: What’s a personal goal for you this season?
A: To be the best defensive player in the conference.

Q: What are your plans post-graduation?
A: I want to continuing playing in Europe for five or six years. Then eventually, I want to train horses and get back into rodeo.

Q: What’s your favorite thing to do outside of basketball and school?
A: Rodeo. I miss it a lot. I want to get back into barrel racing after playing ball.

Q: What made you decide to come to CSU?
A: I decided it was time for a change from Texas, to get away from home. It also helped knowing that Amaka (Uzomah) was coming to CSU too. Plus they have a great Equine Science program.

Q: Who’s your favorite athlete?
A: I’d have to say Cynthia Cooper who now coaches for Prairie View A&M. As far as male athletes, I’d say Kenyan Martin for the Denver Nuggets.

Q: Do you have any special bonds with any individual teammate?
A: Juanise is my best friend, we do everything together.

Q: What gets you most pumped before a game?
A: Being with my teammates, playing music in the locker room and dancing around.

Q: What do you want people to know about you outside of basketball?
A: I’m a chill person. People think I’m constantly scowling and I don’t mean to, I’m really a nice person. And I’m most happy just chilling at home with my new dog.

Q: What’s been your favorite memory at CSU?
A: Outside of beating Utah last year, I’d say our new start. We got a fresh start this year with a new coach and a new team.

Q: Do you have any nicknames?
A: Forest, B, and B Minor.
