Q&A with sharpshooter Triston Chambers
Triston Chambers is currently a sophomore for the Bulldogs that can literally score from anywhere he wants on the court. Earlier this season he exploded for a career high 34 points against VMI and has seen increased minutes due to injuries. He is also leading the team in three point percentage shooting 45 percent from beyond the arc. Staff writer Joi Moore had the opportunity to speak with Chambers recently.
Joi Moore: Where are you from?
Triston Chambers: Cold Springs, Alabama.
JM: What year are you?
JM: What’s your major? Career plans?
TC: Health Sciences; I plan on playing basketball for as long as I can. I also plan on being involved with military.
JM: What do you bring to the team? What would you say is your role?
TC: I bring the ability to score at all levels of the game. I just play hard every single time to the best of my ability.
JM: What teammate pushes you the most in practice and why?
TC: Tanner Tapp definitely pushes me the most in practice. He always requires me to be confident in my abilities and to just show everyone my skill set.
JM: Pregame routine?
TC: I drink one cup of coffee two hours before every game.
JM: What do you think the team needs to work on?
TC: I think we need to work on being closer off the court in order for us to play better together on the court.
JM: Favorite part about being on the team?
TC: I get to play the game I love.
JM: What can you improve on individually to help better the team?
TC: I need to work on my leadership skills. It’s important that I capitalize on leading on and off the court in order to help the team.
Chambers and the Samford Bulldogs have two more regular season games on the road against VMI and UNCG on Feb. 23 and 25.
