Women's Basketball Team
#25 Sammi Brown
Major: Athletic Training
Why did you decide to play on this year's basketball team? I missed playing in high schools after I took a year off, and I thought why not. I also wanted to meet new people instead of my friends from high school and I thought this would be a great way, I also wanted to get back in shape.
What do you like about this year's team? The team is filled with different personalities and we can have fun and joke around, and we have to push each other since it is a small team.
Who would you like to go to dinner with and why? I would go to dinner with my grandma and my dad. My dad passed away in 2009 and my
Grandma in 2015. My grandma was my rock after my dad had died and I would do anything to hear them say “hi” one more time.
#30 Audra Brandenburg
Major: Elementary Education
Transfer: UW-Milwaukee or UW-Oshkosh
Why did you decide to play on this year's basketball team? I really missed playing school sports, so I decided to join because I wanted to have that experience one last time. I knew I would be really disappointed in myself if I didn't take the opportunity.
What do you like about this year's team? I think it's cool that all of us girls have very different personalities, but we get along well, and we make it work. We gain better relationships with each other because there are so few of us, and there aren't any cliques within us like there were in my middle and high school teams.
Who would you like to go to dinner with and why? I would really like to have dinner with my parents. My mom is just awesome, and my dad passed away when I was sixteen. I would give almost anything to be able to have dinner with him again.

Major: Animal Science
Transfer: UW-River Falls
Why did you decide to play on this year's basketball team? I always liked basketball, and this was a fun way to be able to play college sports with a group of
really great girls.
What do you like about this year's team? I like the fact that it’s a small group, and that we can all joke around with each other and have fun.
Who would you like to go to dinner with and why? I would definitely go to dinner with my twin
sister because I haven’t seen her in a long time. We would probably just laugh the entire time at
inside jokes rather than eating. Plus, she wouldn’t make fun of me for just eating ice cream.
