SEC Media Days: Martha Alwal

On being meaner in the paint…

“You know what; it’s still hard for me. I still keep to myself a little bit, like don’t touch me. I am really trying hard to be meaner; I have a little mean streak in me.

On summer conditioning this year…

Conditioning was really great for me this year. My first year with (Coach Vic) Schaefer didn’t go as well, but then conditioning this year went really well. I ran the mile in 6:55, so I’m proud of myself.”

On being assertive on offense and defense more consistently…

“That is something that is a challenge for me but I am really trying to work on it at practice. I try to work on bringing it every single day. Of course (Coach Vic) Schaefer is going to get on me about not to take plays off, but it is really up to me to try and motivate myself and work every single time. I can’t take plays off. If we want to get anywhere, I can’t take plays off; I have to go hard every single time.”

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
