Coach Vic's Corner kicks off with an interview with Brookhaven legend Andrew Lavender

Coach Vic's Corner is a weekly series featuring interviews with some of Central Ohio's greatest basketball players in history. Coach Victor Dandridge talks with some of Ohio's legends on the hardwood.

This year I am doing something a little different. Last year we had Coach Vic's Post of the Day. This year we will have Coach Vic's Blast from the Past.

I personally contact a player from Ohio high school basketball history and ask them a series of questions. Post their response and allow you the readers to add anything you want about that in particular player. Hopefully you all have some great stories to add. I will be reaching out to many. I look forward to their responses. So kicking this off, my first conversation:

Date: January 4, 2017

Andrew Lavender (PG, Brookhaven High School, Class of 2003)

Q: What is the greatest game you can recall playing in your high school career?

A: Versus Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary (December 2002)

Q: Who was the best opponent you ever faced?

A: LeBron James

Q: What player gave you the hardest time on the court while 
you were on defense?

A: Johnathon Hargett from Hargrave Military Academy.

Q: What player gave you the hardest time when you were on offense?

A: Chris Paul.

Q: What particular play or moment on the court do you enjoy 
recalling in your mind?

A: Playing against Cincinnati Withrow in Cincinnati, driving 
and faking a between the legs dribble and throwing a 
pass to the opposite corner. So sweet it had the home
crowd going crazy for like five minutes.

Q: What advice would you give today's high school players?

A: You have to have confidence to be your best. Always
try to be the best player on the court each game 
regardless of rankings!

Thanks Drew!
