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 senior Amber Singletary sits down with OleMissSports.com.
Rising senior Amber Singletary enters her senior year in 2014-15 and is looking to go out with a bang. The Baltimore, Md., native averaged 3.0 points and 1.6 rebounds in 2013-14 and always seems to have a breakout game when her family is in the stands. Last season, Singletary dropped 10 points vs. West Virginia, her first start of the season and had 15 including five triples with her family looking on against Georgia.
Q: You’re about to be a senior, what are you most looking forward to in your upcoming senior year and is there anything that scares you about being a senior and so close to the “real world”?Singletary: I'm excited about playing my last season with the teammates I have but I'm scared to death about the "real world" just because I enjoyed college so much.
Q: What’s one thing that your teammates and Ole Miss fans don’t know about you?
Singletary: My teammates know most things about me. The fans may not know that I hate chewed gum -- it’s gross. Lol!
Q: If you weren’t playing basketball at Ole Miss what other sport would you be playing and why?
Singletary: I think I would be either running track or playing lacrosse because I think I would be good at those.
Q: What’s your earliest basketball or funniest basketball memory?
Singletary: My earliest basketball memory is when I would make my father stand outside our house when I couldn't get the ball in the hoop and I just wanted to make one shot.
Q: What’s your dream job?
Singletary: My dream job is to be a sports commentator on ESPN. I think that sports need to add a female perspective to things especially as it pertains to the sports world.
