Life has moved fast for Cameron Brink since being selected second overall by the Los Angeles Sparks in this year’s WNBA Draft. From appearances, acclimating herself to her new teammates, and the other obligations that come with being the face of a franchise, the 22-year-old has handled it all with the poise of a 10-year vet.

Brink finished her collegiate career at Stanford as the Pac-12 player of the year while averaging 17.4 points and 11.9 rebounds. She also led the nation in blocks at 3.74 per game to win the Naismith Women’s Defensive Player of the Year. The Sparks will look for Brink’s defense and offensive versatility to help end a three-year playoff drought.

In between adjusting to life as a pro in LA and making her way through her first training camp, Brink chatted with Muscle & Fitness on some of her daily essentials.
