695HOOPS WHERE IT'S ALWAYS ALL ABOUT THE GIRLS
Woodlawn's Shadequa Longus slowed down long enough between college visits to answer a few questions for 695Hoops. The senior point guard from Baltimore's Gwynn Oak area has been the driving force behind Woodlawn's early season success.
695: How old were you when you started playing ball?
Shadequa: I was like 5 when I started playing.
695: Where did you grow up?

695: What AAU teams have you played for?

695: Tell me about a funny AAU road trip story...
Shadequa: One of the funniest AAU roadtrips i can think of is when we went to Penn State for the Blue Chip tournament. On our way to one of our games it was a couple of girls in one van with me as well as the coach and the team mom. The team mom had cut on some music that we liked but she said it was to early to listen to it, so she cut it off. So we all looked around at each other and we started making our own music and dancing with each other. Then our team mom joined us and we recorded each other dancing one by one, just having a good time.
