From the beginning of the year, we did not know what to expect for this season. We lost our quintessential All-American, my sister Nneka, along with other instrumental cogs to the Stanford women's basketball machine: Lindy La Rocque, Grace Mashore, Sarah Boothe.
This was another fun and exciting week for our program as we came off a loss at Minnesota with a win at Nebraska that solidified us as the outright Big Ten champs. Another exciting part was knowing my dad would make one of his appearances on this trip.
This weekend was a very exciting time for our program in all kinds of ways. To say the least, there was a lot going on in Happy Valley at the Bryce Jordan Center.We honored our five seniors with Senior Day before the game, and it was our seventh annual Pink Zone at Penn State game.
One of the best things about college is being immersed in a new environment. You are independent. You realize very quickly you and only you are accountable for your success or failure.Nevertheless, when you go, you take a piece of home with you: your values, hopes, dreams and ambitions.
We’re approaching our last two home games of the season and the homestretch of the regular season. These will be our seniors’ last two games at the Bryce Jordan Center in front of our amazing fans.
I came to Penn State for many reasons, but one of the biggest was the chance to play for my head coach, Coquese Washington. I clearly remember the first time I saw Co at one of my AAU tournaments, where my dad informed me after the game that she was the new Penn State coach.
For anyone who follows Coach P on twitter or knows her at all, you know she is big on motivation and inspiration. Recently, we got an essay from an anonymous 12-year old who watches us play. In it he wrote, “To someone who is great, there is no such thing as the best.
At Penn State there is an overwhelming amount of support from the community for its sports teams. We consider ourselves very lucky for the crowds who attend our games loyally throughout the season. Whenever my teammates and I are walking around, on or off campus, we can always expect good luck wishes for our upcoming games and constant reminders of support and reassurance of attendance at the next game, win or lose.
Last week one of my teammates reached a huge milestone in her career. In our win over Minnesota, Nikki Greene pulled down a tough offensive rebound in traffic scored with a quick putback layup. That basket marked the 1,000th point of Nikki’s career.
Many people ask me where I work out and practice my shot during our brief summer break. I spend the majority of the summer driving out to my old high school to lift and shoot. At night, however, I walk down to my favorite courts in the whole world, the Narberth basketball courts.
Happy New Year!My blog is back from its winter break. I can't believe it’s already 2013! Each day I wake up in beautiful Palo Alto, I know I am blessed.First, I am blessed to be playing the sport I love.
Hello again! I’m back with a lot of stuff to catch you up on.Everyone on the team had a wonderful Christmas -- time we spent with family and friends. Prior to leaving for the holidays, the team took a trip to two different hospitals to spread some cheer to those who might not be home around Christmas.
Behind the Lady Lions team, there is another team that helps us prepare for every game. It goes by the name “The Red Dragons” or “P-Squad.” The Red Dragons are our men’s practice team and they are a crucial part of our success.
After putting up a triple-double against Boston College on Sunday, Chelsea Gray set a school record with 15 assists against Clemson on Thursday. Haley Peters chats her up.
Many people who are a part of the Lady Lions program work behind the scenes and are just as important as the players and coaches. As we begin another semester at Penn State, I would like to introduce you to one of those.
