Throughout the summer months members of the Ole Miss women’s basketball team will share their thoughts on a host of ideas with our weekly feature “Roll Call with the Rebels” This week, rising sophomore Shequila Joseph sits down with OleMissSports.com

Rising sophomore Shequila Joseph made the longest trek to Oxford, traveling across the pond to suit up for Ole Miss. The London native adjusted to the rigors of the American game on the fly during her rookie season but managed to start in all 32 games for the Rebels and averaged 6.1 points and drained 37 triples. Joseph answers a few questions in this week’s edition of Roll Call with the Rebels.    

Q: You’re not a freshman anymore, what were some challenges you faced during your freshman year?
Joseph:
The biggest challenges I faced where getting around campus and meeting new people. But luckily I had my teammates and fellow freshmen to help me out!

Q: What was the biggest adjustment that you had to make during your freshman year?
Joseph:
Adjusting to the American style of basketball and having to be more aggressive on court were big adjustments. Also, the different coaching style and different type of officials they have here. Playing the four position in America is a lot different from playing it in England; the girls are much more physical and I had to improve in the weight room to compete night after night.

Q: If you could pick one of your teammates to go on the show Amazing Race with who would it be and why?
Joseph:
Danielle McCray.  She may be quiet, but I bet she has some tricks up her sleeve, that could help us win the race and the money that comes with it!

Q: What’s one thing you miss from London?
Joseph:
Just being able to do about anything I can think of by jumping on a bus or train. Public transportation is so much more available there. I also miss my friends and family.

Q: What’s your favorite thing about America?
Joseph:
The people are very friendly and very welcoming. They made me feel apart of something special, which is why I love it here!
