We're in San Antonio this week covering the Women's Final Four for Sports Illustrated.
Today we're working on a multimedia project for SI for Kids and we needed to interview Maya Moore. The locker room was crowded and loud. Not ideal for sound gathering. We NEEDED a quiet place and the locker room full of loud journalists and hungry players wasn't ideal.
Randy Press, UConn's SID delivered, in an original fashion, on cue and with quiet grace.
Maya was perfect. We had three minutes. She used 2 minutes and 58 seconds giving us articulate, thoughtful quotes that will make the piece sing.
