Alexis Tubbs

I started playing basketball when I was in second grade. The coach of “biddy ball” told me to come join the practices because my sister played, and I was always watching anyway. I think overall, basketball has changed my life, in a sense that it’s made me who I am today. It has helped me become a better leader on and off the court, learn to work with others, and always strive to be and do the best I can. I don’t think I would be the same person I am today without the game of basketball.

Describe what it is like to be a part of the Cazenovia community.
Being a part of the Cazenovia College community is humbling. It’s a small knit community that acts as a family.

How would you describe yourself as an athlete? What motivates you as a player?
How I describe myself as an athlete is hardworking. I strive to be the best I can be for myself but also for my teammates. What motivates me the most as a player is seeing all my hard work pay off in games or after the off-season.

Favorite pre-game warm up song?
My favorite pre-game warm up song is Jingle Bell Remix.

Would you ever consider coaching this sport when your older?
I would definitely consider coaching basketball eventually. I do not think I will ever stop loving the sport, so eventually I hope I can enjoy coaching just as much as I enjoy playing it!

Finish this sentence: My time here as a Cazenovia College Wildcat has been…
An amazing experience I will carry with me throughout my life.

One piece of advice that you would like to give for incoming freshman…
One piece of advice I would give is work hard. Hard work is something nobody else can beat, always be the best YOU can be. Also, take every opportunity you get, you will never get these four years back, and make sure you make the most of them, you’ll thank yourself later in life.
