Zach Sanders, Columbus East junior basketball player
Sanders scored a career-high 24 points Friday to lead the Olympians to a 79-65 win at Madison. He went 9-of-13 from the field, including 5-of-6 from 3-point range, and 1-of-2 from the free-throw line.
His performance last week:
“I felt pretty good about it, hitting all those 3’s. My teammates were getting me the ball, so I just have to knock them down.”
Do you do anything special to prepare?
“Every game, I go to our pregame warmup and warm up hard.”
Favorite music group:
“The ‘Cirque Da Freak’ series or ‘Summer Ball’”
“My favorite player in the NBA is probably Paul George”
“When you’re not hitting shots, just keep shooting, and keep your confidence up.”
“Our goal for the team is to win the sectional.”
If you could travel anywhere:
“Probably the Bahamas, because it seems like a cool place to go for a getaway.”
