For many, music is a push factor against the demons of anxiety and nervousness before a competition. For others, a pre-game playlist is a "Secret sauce" used to stir up and release whatever is channeled within them in an effort to lead their team to victory.
Today we begin a new series titled "Gameday Playlist Vibes," which feature must-play pre-game songs from rising basketball stars in New Jersey. Next up is Saddle River Day wing Jaida Patrick. Jaida had a big game last week, logging a Quadruple-Double in 3 quarters of play! That’s right: 17 points, 15 rebs, 11 steals and 10 assists! Enjoy the jams from the junior wing below.

Thoughts on the bus ride before the game: Music helps me believe that no one can guard me. It helps me tune into game mode. I listen to the songs and envision myself dominating on the court.

Lupe Fiasco - The Show Goes On
Meek Mill - Dreams and Nightmares
