Staff writer Brian Paglia recently spoke with Bennett about coming home to Clayton County and her love of Disney movies.
Who: Junior forward on Clayton State women's basketball team.
High School: Mundy's Mill
Bennett played for former Mundy's Mill coach Lonnie Farmer and played a season at Lincoln Memorial University before transferring to Clayton State.
Played in 10 games, averaging 1.5 points in 7.8 minutes per game.
Major: Health care management
Decision to transfer: "I missed home. I was inconsistent, and they weren't sure if they wanted to keep me or not. It was kind of a debate on both ends. So I came here. (Coach Dennis Cox) took me in. I had a lot of reasons. I thought it could be a transformation for me. I might get more playing time, but either way I win. ... I'm closer to home. My family can come to games, and at Lincoln Memorial I rarely saw my parents. It was four hours away."
Life on a college team:
"We do a lot of basketball stuff. When we're off the court, everybody's always together. We click real well. We have movie nights and stuff like that."
"Probably New Year's. We just party. Nothing bad, though, nothing major. Everybody has a good time. Just being with them is good. Not everybody's able to go home to their immediate family, so it's like a second home."
"All Dogs Go To Heaven. I'm into Disney movies. I'm a big kid."
"I listen to random music, like (composer) Clint Mansell. I listen to smooth R & B. I'm more of an old-school person. That's pretty much it. I'm not into much other stuff."
Plans after college:
"Not exactly (sure) right now. Hopefully I will get into a clinic or something in the health care field."
