Jenni Carlson: Bedlam will be your second game as a starter. What do you prefer — starter or super sub? Nyeshia Stevenson: Because I’m so used to subbing, I have a feel for that the most, but I wouldn’t mind either. (The Texas A&M) game, it was so sudden with Whitney (Hand) getting hurt. We weren’t used to me being out there. JC: Were you used to being out there? NS: It took me a little while to get adjusted. Normally, I know I’m not going to get in until maybe the 16-minute mark. I’m out there and the clock says 18 minutes, and I’m like, "Oh, gosh, this is weird.” But I shook it off. JC: I have to ask you about your major — film studies. Does that mean you walk around with a camera, filming everything? NS: (Laughs.) Honestly, I want to be a film writer. I would even play a part. I would be either the director or the writer or starring. JC: But didn’t you run a camera for the coach’s show or something? NS: That moment was when I decided I wanted to do this. I’d never taken any of the classes. I didn’t even know we had film studies here. (Laughs.) I told one of the guys on the crew ... "This is what I want to do. How can I do this?” JC: So, you could be the one shouting "action” at some point? NS: It could be. You’ll see the credits and it will say directed by or written by or starring. (Laughs.) JC: I have to ask about some of your favorite movies. They include "Love & Basketball,” "Friday” and "Legally Blonde.” "Legally Blonde”? NS: "Legally Blonde” ... I know, I know, it sounds bad coming from me, but I can say that movie word for word. JC: That’s one of those movies that you’re ashamed to admit you’ve seen, but it’s a pretty good movie. NS: It was. I watch it all the time. I catch it every time it comes on USA. (Laughs.) JC: Last topic — dunking. You can dunk, and there are more women who can. How long before that’s a regular part of the college game? NS: I won’t put it past five (years). I go back and visit my high school, and there are girls who go up and touch the backboard every day and see how high they can get. Then, when they can get to the rim, they jump up there and grab it. Then, they try to get the ball. It’s something that girls want to do. JC: What about you? Are you going to dunk in a game? NS: Every time I go up for a lay-up, I run back and I think, "Dang, I should’ve tried.” Like the A&M game, I kid you not, when I got a steal in the second half, I was so wide open ... I was like, "What was I thinking? At least attempt.” I was mad at myself. JC: So, there might come a time where you try to throw one down? NS: If I ever think it before I get up there, then I’m gonna try. Want to know about Nyeshia Stevenson’s literary interests and hidden talents? Check out my blog at NewsOK.com.
