Welcome to Senior Year!!

Jacinda Dunbar: Reporting live from Quinnipiac – I actually never thought this time would come where I would be finishing the last year of school and basketball. But I’m trying to enjoy each day like it’s my last. I finally get the idea behind that statement when you apply it behind something that you love to do. So far, I’ve just finished week three of pre-season and it’s looking the best it’s ever been since I’ve been here. We have a roster of 15, with 6 of them being freshman so you would think everything would go by slowly but they have managed to keep there stride with the upperclassmen pretty well since summer school. Most of them can hold their own and I think that has made their transition into college a lot easier than other students that start off. But as for me, I’m just trying to keep up and be a leader for the rest of them.
Our week consists of 4 out of 5 days in the weight room and two days of practice. Our “free day” is us playing organized pick up so we still get some conditioning in. Our conditioning occurs twice a week, Mondays and Fridays. On Mondays we run either 11s or 22s. 11s are an up and back in under 11 seconds and 22s are two up and backs in under 22 seconds. Depending on the week, can run 16 or 18 11s, or 10 or 12 22s. After we run, we lift because the idea is lift when you’re fatigued so you learn how to push through it. Trust me, bench pressing 100 lbs or doing a 200 lbs. dead lift is a lot harder tired. After lifting and conditioning and any more physical pain they decide to put us through, we hit the cafe (best part of the day) and depending on class schedules, you either go to class or get an early start on sleep. Fortunately for me I am only taking 4 classes this semester and have only one class after practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays so right now I’m living the life.
Well, just wanted to give you a general background on what’s happening with my life at Quinnipiac. More coming next week!!
