      Winter season has transitioned into basketball season at East. Basketball is generally a prominent sport, and last year’s success between both men and women’s basketball at East has brought on even more attention to the teams. East’s men’s basketball had an admirable start to the season, going 12-8 with a 6-2 record at home. While in the middle of their season, The Hawk’s Eye decided to ask a few varsity basketball players questions that may help you get to know the players a bit better.

The questions asked include who their NBA comparison is, best and worst dressed, funniest player, smartest player, who has changed most since freshman year, and who you do want taking a game-winning shot.
