I Love Roy Hibbert!

But not that way.

As promised, Luke Winn's interview with Big Roy is now avaiable at It's a pretty good Q&A session. Here are some of the highlights: (1) Roy likes the "Roy, Roy, Roy" chant, but is able to block it out; (2) he likes to go on YouTube and watch basketball clips (maybe he's seen some of Diamond Mike's?); and (3) he's a government major and wants to work on the Hill this summer.

LW: It says in your bio that you're a government major. Is that still true -- and do you plan to do anything with it?

RH: Yeah, I'm in political science. I might get an internship on the Hill this summer -- I need to make a decision on that soon, but because basketball is going on right now, I haven't been able to sit down with my advisor and look at it. Coach Thompson knows enough people around town that I'm hoping he could pull some strings.

LW: Are there any current politicians that you admire?

RH: I like Barack Obama. He came to campus and spoke [in September], and I got a chance to listen to it, sitting way up in the rafters. What he was talking about really seemed to click with me.

LW: Any chance you'll have a future in politics after college?

RH: Maybe if basketball doesn't work out, I'll run for office. But that's way down the road. I'm just trying to win ballgames right now.
