Q&A with Lexus Levy
Freshman guard making an impact in debut season
Freshman guard Lexus Levy has already made an impact for the Colonials throughout the first month of the season. She has appeared in all ten games to date while averaging 19 minutes per outing. The Binghamton, New York, native is averaging 5.0 points and 1.5 assists per game while showing a knack for the three-ball with 11 three-pointers made on the season.
Levy recently caught up with GWsports.com to talk about a number of topics.
Who was your basketball idol growing up?
I’d say Kobe Bryant was my basketball idol while growing up. But now, looking at the big picture, I am currently playing for one of the best point guards ever that also played at UConn. So I would say Jen Rizzotti is one of my idols and I look up to her.
If you weren’t playing college hoops, what sport would you want to try to play?
I would love to say I would try to play soccer but I think I’d trip over the ball. So I think softball would be my next choice.
What is your favorite class you have taken so far at GW?
My favorite class was over the summer and it was a criminal justice class. I found it really interesting and it is what I now want to major in.
What is your favorite thing about living in Washington, D.C.?
It is the big city! Coming from Binghamton, New York, there wasn’t really a lot going on. But here in the city there a little bit of everything!
Do you have any pregame rituals or superstitions?
Before every game I listen to R&B love songs. I just think it is soothing and helps me get into a rhythym.
What is the best vacation you have ever taken?
I really haven’t been on a big vacation because I’ve always been playing basketball. So I can’t really answer that right now.
What is the first thing you do when you go home to Binghamton?
When I first go home I either get Brozzetti’s Pizza or Spiedie, which is like a marinated chicken sandwich.
On a scale of 1-10, what is your cooking ability?
I give myself a five. I can cook certain things.
What is your all-time favorite movie?
Love and Basketball
What is one thing you can’t live without?
I probably can’t live without basketball but in all honesty, the answer is my phone.
