Locker room talk: “I listen to a lot of Frank Sinatra,” says Julian Welch who scored 28 points in a pair of Old Spice Classic victories to help Minnesota reach Sunday’s title game.
“I listen to a lot of old-school stuff like Al Green. I have Sinatra’s greatest hits. I usually listen to that before I go to sleep,” said Welch, who credits his grandfather, Warren, for his taste in music.
“Honestly, I would just say I’m a basketball player. Whatever I need to do to get the job done, I try to do it,” said Welch, who wears jersey No. 00. “I don’t really define myself as one particular position because that just narrows you down.”
Let’s just call him a finisher. Sinatra crooned “And now, the end is here” to open the song “My Way,” and the ends of games have been when Welch has had his way lately.”
Frank is still with us.
