Never miss a local story.
Shooting .750 from the free-throw line, second best on team
Did you know?
A native of Chester, Gaines remembers Devan Downey.
“He was a little bit before me, but I always watched him during high-school games. I played with his sister, Mara White.”
But she doesn’t wear No. 2 because of him.
“This is my own number. It’s the number I had in AAU. I wanted to get No. 12, but Wilka Montout had it. Maybe I’ll get it next year (Montout is a senior).”
She has her own pre-game routine.
“I love to dance, and I love to laugh all the time. I just do stupid stuff, like imitating dances and stuff, something crazy. I’ll just make up some dances.”
Has that ever gotten her in trouble?
“No. I do it before games, usually in the locker room, sometimes in the weight room. The coaches haven’t got me yet.”
