Currie, who averages 17 points and 9 rebounds per game, has committed to Gardner-Webb University. Currie transferred to Romeoville from Bolingbrook after her freshman year.
Any postseason goals?
Our first goal was to win conference. That was the first step. From there, keep winning each time we play and do our best. We can’t let the past affect us.
Feel like you’ve accomplished a lot at Romeoville?
I think I’ve grown a lot. It was a big decision after my freshman year to transfer. It was a bit of a gamble, but I think it was a gamble for the best. The girls and the coaches are great. We just keep working to get better every day. I love that drive.
What would you improve about your overall game?
Mostly (using) my left hand.
Biggest difference between boys and girls basketball?
Girls play with a lot more thought to the game and a lot more heart.
When I visited I just felt comfortable there. I felt like I was home. No one made me feel out of place. I liked the environment.
Favorite sports movie?
“Love and Basketball”. It reminds me of us a lot. No one believed in her, and she proved them wrong.
Who is your celebrity prom date?
(Rapper) Trey Songz.
You’re on a deserted island and can never run out of one food. What do you pick?
Tacos, hands down. Chipotle tacos.
What will you remember most about Romeoville?
I think mostly the basketball team and the people. They really care about you. It makes you feel comfortable, like a second home.
