Mokena resident Lauren Knight is a senior guard on the Providence basketball team.

How long have you been played basketball and how did you first get started?

I’ve been playing since I was 5. My dad [Matt] played basketball and coached basketball, so he got me into it. He coached my school team up until eighth grade, and he coached my travel team until sixth or seventh grade.

What was it like playing for your dad?

I liked it a lot. I’m really close with my dad. We’ve both always loved basketball.
