5 questions with Delaware’s Vanessa Kabongo

Mar 12, 2011, 1:02 AM EDT

The junior guard from Toronto scored 11 with 5 assists in the victory over ODU.

1. Talk about knocking the Lady Monarchs out of the quarterfinals. “We haven’t beaten ODU since I’ve been here. It’s a pretty big win for us. We knew from the get go we were going to come out with plenty of energy and pick each other up. This is awesome.”

2. What do you miss about home? “My family. My brothers. I’m 1 of 6 and I have 5 brothers. Plus my mom’s cooking. She makes great rice, great ethnic food.”

3. Hobby? “I’m a shop-a-holic. I can’t buy anything unless I try it on. I love shoes, love heels, but I can’t wear them much during the season. Not with these legs.”

4. What else do you like? “My friends think I’m really weird for this, but I love the news. I love to watch CNN and BBC. I like to know what’s going on.”

5. Secret indulgence? “I like to practice my runway walk. I used to always watch the show ‘America’s Next Top Model.’ “

Fun Kabongo fact: Her younger bro, Myck, has signed to play basketball at Texas. “He’s a point guard, too.”
