Hi, my name is Andrea Basista, but most people call me Andi. I’m from a small farm town in Ohio where there is just about as many cows and chickens as people. My time in the midwest was filled by husking corn and playing year round basketball with friends and family. I began my love for sports as a young kid. By the age of five I was already playing basketball and found one of my passions. I continued on playing all throughout high school but made the decision not to continue the sport in college and branch out with new opportunities in California.

Moving across the country to LA has been a bit of a culture shock, but one that I have learned to embrace and love. The big city life has allowed me to expand my previously narrow perspective on life and all it embodies. Coming to Biola has allowed me to grow personally and spiritually with the Lord. The Chimes is allowing me the opportunity to increase my passion for sports by writing and editing for their sports section. When I’m not at school or working part-time you will find me at the beach with friends or slumming it on a couch listening to music. I’m looking forward to taking on the position of deputy sports editor and continuing to pursue sportswriting!
