Lacy Haddock is a junior guard for the CSUSB men’s basketball team and has been playing basketball for most of his life.
Not only is he a great basketball player, but he also wants to be involved with sports after college.
In his first year playing for the Coyotes, Haddock is averaging 10.5 points, 4.5 assist, and 2.7 rebounds this season.
Due to his dedication on the court, off the court family is his motivation.
He is the youngest of three siblings and was born and raised in the bright lights of Las Vegas, NV.
“What motivates me to go out and play basketball is my family and my mother because it makes me work hard to get to the next level and I want to help out my family,” said Haddock.
With having his family as motivation, Haddock also has a mentor he could talk to.
“My mentor would have to be my old coach Ronnie Childress, because if I need some advice whether if it’s about basketball or life, I could always give him a call,” Haddock replied.
When asked what his greatest moment as a player was, he had many to share but it was one in particular that he remembers vividly.
“Last year, I had knee surgery and my second game back off of knee surgery, I hit a shot at the buzzer to win the game for my team,” Haddock explained.
By coming off his injury and hitting the game-winning shot, it showed he was dedicated.
He has not only showed dedication to his team, but also inside of the classroom. Haddock is a good student in the classroom and is studying psychology and has a plan to become a sports therapist in the near future.
If you don’t know, Lacy is one of the biggest shoe fanatics you can meet, having a collection of more than 50 pairs of shoes, whether if it is Nike or retro pairs of Air Jordans.
“My favorite sneaker would have to be the Black Cement Air Jordan 3,” said Haddock.
Other things that Haddock likes to do when he’s not collecting shoes or shooting a basketball is watching his favorite NBA team, the Los Angeles Lakers, which also has his favorite player, Kobe Bryant.
“Kobe Bryant makes the game look so easy to play and is hands down my favorite basketball player,” Haddock said.
Overall, Haddock is a motivated, dedicated and passionate player for what he does on and off the court.
