Q: What advice would you give to a young fan who wants to play collegiate basketball?

Q: What is your favorite sports memory?

BERRY: "Winning a Dick’s National Championship in New York senior year of high school. It was my senior year, we were in New York and it was at Madison Square Garden, that’s why it is such a big memory. Playing on that floor was a nice experience and winning it made it even better.”

Q: When you go home, what is the one thing that you have to eat?

BERRY: “This restaurant called Finga Licking, it’s only in Miami. They’ve got soul food.”

Q: What team(s) are you most looking forward to facing this season?
