Coach Moore’s Thoughts on Kristen Spann:

Kristen has good strength, which allows her to play physical on the block offensively and defensively. Her combination of three-point range as well as her ability to handle the ball makes her most comfortable facing the basket but she also has the strength to play physical on the blocks defensively and offensively. She can be a problem for opposing posts with ver versatility.


Q&A with Kristen


Why do you wear No. 32?

        I was #55, but my high school coach ordered #32 my freshman year and I stuck with it.

Who has been the most influential person in your life?

        Mom and Dad for being the amazing people they are and my high school coaches John and Gail Wild.

Favorite pre-game meal....

        don’t have a favorite

What’s the one song that gets you pumped up before a game?

        AC/DC “Are You Ready” and I always listen to Al Pacino’s “Inch by Inch” speech from “Any Given Sunday”

Song currently playing on your cell phone

        Rihanna “Shut Up and Drive”

Favorite Sports Movie

        “Love and Basketball”

If you could be on any reality show, which one would it be?

        “The Bachelorette”

When my playing days are over, I plan to...

        Cry for a couple of days (ha-ha). Find a job, move to a big city for cosmetology school and eventually own my own salon

Favorite thing about basketball

        The competitive nature, the relationships you build with your teammates and the fun you have doing something you love.

Most intense person on the bench

        Probably Erin. We get excited on the post end.
