What Tatjana Sparavalo had to say...

Thanks for the concern Casey (see the below post) but I am alive and well after my brush with death out on the ski slopes. By the way.... Ski lodge bars are awesome. Okay I'm done. Moving on.

If you've covered EWU women's basketball in the past few years, chances are you've ran into Tatjana Sparavalo. I can remember first seeing this girl playing basketball and immediatly fearing for the safety of the opposing team. She plays tough, hard-nosed basketball and she's from Serbia. Seems about right.

Anyways, they did a Q&A with her on GoEags.com, because she's awesome and she's leading the team in scoring and all that jazz. I thought I'd take a little gander at what she said.

Q: What do you plan to do with your degree?

A: “I’m not really sure yet. I might try to find a job somewhere in California because I like the weather there. If not, I might go home.”

You shouldn't go home Tatjana because there is a state that is kind of like you're home. It's called Montana.

Q: Why did you choose to come to Eastern?

A: “I really liked Coach Schuller because she was very caring. And, I thought it was a good program. Another reason I came was because Milan Stanojevic, another basketball player from Serbia, signed with Eastern. I thought it would be an easier adjustment for me if I had someone to relate to from back home.”

It's true, Coach Wendy Schuller is awesome. I've never heard somebody say a bad thing about her, or if somebody did say a bad thing about her, there was usually a resulting barfight from those wanting to defend her honor. She's that cool. Oh and she wears awesome sweaters.

Q: What has been your favorite class and why?

A: “I don’t think I really had a favorite class. But, I do really like the ethics and leadership class that I am taking right now.

Sure, Tatjana , coming from the player that has no problem throwing 'bows and laying down the law. You keep talking about ethics as your "Big Sky stitches caused" stat keeps counting upwards.

Q: Who is your favorite teammate and why?

A: “Probably Kyla Evans and Julie Piper. I can’t pick only one. Kyla, Julie and I are all best friends. We have been through thick and thin together.”

Oh sure, pick Julie Piper, the EWU copy of Tim Duncan and Kyla Evans, Reggie Miller's prodigy.

Q: Who was your first celebrity crush?

A: “George Clooney! When I saw him in E.R., I fell in love with him, and I am still in love with him today.”

I'm very disappointed this isn't "Brandon Hansen and Mike Miller, the Big Sky TV commentators" but I guess I will just let this one slide.
