OFF THE COURT WITH MCKENZIE ADAMS
Adams checks in from Frisco, Texas, where she played for Frisco Centennial High School. Adams averaged 19.9 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game as a junior, earning District 9-4A MVP honors. Originally from Bryant, Ark., Adams' family moved to Texas prior to her junior year of high school.
Adams follows in her father's footsteps as a Razorback. Gary "Peanut" Adams played football at Arkansas from 1988-92.
The Daily Call: What made you want to become a Razorback?
'Kenzie Adams: Just growing up in Arkansas and also my dad went here, so I’ve always been a Razorback fan. This is the biggest school here in the state, we have a lot of fans and I thought that it would be the best atmosphere.
TDC: Have you seen much from your dad’s playing days?
Adams: He tries to show me game film, which is all blurry and old. I’ve seen some of it. He was alright (laughs).
TDC: What does playing college basketball mean to you?
Adams: It’s a blessing. I don’t think I noticed it until we had to go buy our books and things like that. I see how much this costs and the fact that we don’t have to pay for it is just great.
TDC: As a freshman, what have been your impressions so far of college?
Adams: I like it. Being a student-athlete, you don’t have time for a lot of free time and hanging out. So, the social life isn’t as much, but playing basketball is what we’re here for. It’s fun.
TDC: When you get a chance to go home and relax, what do you unwind with?
Adams: I like to watch TV. My favorite station is TLC, which may be a little weird but whatever. I like the wedding shows and my mom says that makes me an old lady, but whatever. I also like to listen to music, read my Bible and other things like that.
TDC: At what age did you start playing basketball?
Adams: I started playing basketball in fourth grade
TDC: Did you play any other sports at all when you were younger?
Adams: Oh yea. I played basketball, soccer, gymnastics, cheerleading, volleyball--I did a little bit of everything.
TDC: If you could play another sport at Arkansas, besides basketball, what would it be?
Adams: Probably volleyball. Because the uniforms are cute and it just looks like a lot of fun and not a lot of stress.
TDC: What do you do before each game? Do you have any superstitions?
Adams: I paint my nails before every game, because I think it makes me shoot better and I also listen to music.
TDC: Do the nails have to be a certain color?
Adams: Nope. They just have to be done (laughs).
TDC: How many songs would you say are on your music device?
Adams: Oh, I love music. I would say that I have thousands of songs. I love old songs too, so I just keep adding to it. I like anything really. I used to just like hip hop and rap, but when I moved up to Fayetteville I noticed that there aren’t as many music stations for that. So, I’ve gotten used to other stuff.
TDC: Who was your childhood hero?
Adams: My parents. I want to be just like them when I grow up.
TDC: Who is your favorite athlete and why?
Adams: Kobe Bryant. He’s the bomb and he’s better than LeBron (James).
TDC: In 10 years, what do you hope to be doing?
Adams: In 10 years, I hope to have a family. I want to be at a big university doing athletic training or something like that. I’m studying kinesiology. I just want to do something medical where I can be around sports still.
TDC: Who’s the most famous person that you’ve met?
Adams: Well, my dad works in the Secret Service, so I’ve met President Bill Clinton, President George W. Bush, Sarah Palin and others like that.
TDC: What’s that like living with someone like your dad who works in the Secret Service? Does that affect you at all?
Adams: It doesn’t really affect me at all, except for that he travels a lot. We kind of have to adjust to that, but that’s it. My family lives in Frisco, Texas, right now.
TDC: What’s a hidden talent about you that someone might not know you have?
Adams: Well I’d like to say that I can dance, but I don’t think that anybody else thinks that (laughs).
TDC: What’s your go-to dance move then?
Adams: I would say that my go-to move is the face frame (continues to laugh).
TDC: If you could have dinner with any two people, who would it be and why?
Adams: Kobe Bryant and Chris Brown. There hasn’t been a song of Chris Brown’s that I don’t like and he’s beautiful. Kobe Bryant because he’s my idol, I’ve always watched him and have grown up watching him.
TDC: What would you say is the greatest invention of the last 100 years?
Adams: Social media, because I feel like you wouldn’t meet half of the people you meet if it wasn’t for social media.
TDC: If you could have one super power what would it be and why?
Adams: I would like to read minds, because I don’t like wondering what people are thinking and would just like to know what everyone is thinking, doing and stuff like that.
TDC: What would you say is the worst household chore?
Adams: Doing dishes, because of the nasty food stuck on things--I just can’t do it. I’ve bought plastic stuff, like plastic microwaveable stuff. To avoid washing dishes I’ve gotten all paper plates, plastic forks and all that stuff.
TDC: What are you a self-proclaimed expert at?
Adams: I would say I’m a self-proclaimed expert at talking. I love to talk. I’m in a public speaking class right now and I thought I’d be really freaked out by that, but I got up and my teacher actually told me I talk to much. So, I guess I'm good at talking.
WEEKEND PHOTO GALLERY
With so many recent home events for Arkansas Athletics, special photographers Christina Long, Alise Crippen, Courtney Cross, Lauren Watson, Mark Larkin Furlow and Meagan Olsen had the chance to step in and help capture some of the action. Check out some of their work:
RECOGNITION FOR @RAZORBACKFB
With spring practice set to start soon around the country, many national outlets are beginning to highlight top performers around the country. Yesterday, Sporting News included 2013 SEC Freshman of the Year Alex Collins in a list of the top-15 running backs in the nation for 2014 and ESPN led its list of the best defensive lineman in the SEC with 2013 second-team All-SEC selection Trey Flowers. Ken Bradley mentioned Collins’ exceptional freshman season and says “As Bret Bielema’s offense evolves, Collins will put up even bigger numbers.” For more on Collins and to see the rest of the list, click here. The comments about Flowers included “He’s been doing his thing for a while now so you should know his name. The 6-foot-4, 265-pound defensive end has quietly become a premier lineman in the league, beginning with a rookie campaign that landed him on the SEC All-freshman team in 2011.” To read the entire story, click here.
