Cooke_Malik_10-11.JPGDescribe a typical game day.
On a typical game day, I will come in and get some shots up and then go back to my room. Then, I will take a nap, hop in the shower, and then come back and listen to some music and shoot some more. I try to prepare myself mentally for the game.

What does the crowd energy bring at Colonial Life Arena?
It is a different atmosphere. When it gets packed in there it gets crazy. The fans give us something extra.

What are you most looking forward to about this season?
I am looking forward to being able to play again and just getting back out there.

What does being a part of the South Carolina basketball team mean to you?
It is like a family. That is what I like about it. The coaches are tough on us, but it is going to pay off and help us.

What is your favorite class at South Carolina?
I like history. I am taking an American history class that I really like. I am very interested about the past.

If you could go to one place in the world, where would you go?
I would probably visit Paris. I have always wanted to go somewhere like that.

Who has been the most influential person on your basketball career?
I don't know if it would be only one person, but I would have to say my family. They have always been there to support me and have had my back through everything.
