Q: What is the one area of your game that has just seemed to come naturally?
Q: What is the best memory of your high school basketball career?
Q: What coach or mentor has had the most influence on your basketball career?
A: Tony Edwards. He was a family figure; he was like my dad at first. He's always been a part of the family since I was young. He never went away. Since I was 2, I can remember Tony always being there and he was really the one that said "Melvin, you're good." He told me to try basketball and now I'm happy with the situation I'm in.
