VILLANOVA, Pa. - As part of Senior Week leading up to the Wildcats' final home game against No. 17 Louisville on Sunday, each of the seniors sat down to answer some questions and let Nova Nation know more about them.

Forward Celise Feller has played crucial minutes as a reserve member of the Wildcats. Off the field, Celise has been an exemplary student, making the NFHCA's National Academic Squad numerous times.

Q: Why did you choose Villanova?
Celise: For me, it was a good distance from home - it's only like a 25-30 minute drive. It's really good academically.

Celise: Beating Louisville sophomore year. We just had to beat Georgetown and we were in to the BIG EAST.

Q: What's your favorite restaurant in Villanova?
Celise: Right now I'm going to go with Verdad. It's delicious and they have Taco Tuesday where you can get tacos for $2 so I'm taking advantage of that.

Q: What are you planning on doing after Villanova?
Celise: If I get a job, I'll be doing that. If not, I guess I can go to Alaska. I heard about this resort where you get free food and lodging, so I think that'd be cool to do for a summer.

Q: Why did you choose your number?
Celise: I was always 14 in high school and when we got here that wasn't available. My sister was 23 in high school, so I was like, I'll be her.

Q: What is your pregame routine?
Celise: Christine [Lafferty] and I, when we do 1-yard passes, if Christine and I keep the same ball the whole time, we say it's going to be a great game.
