Growing up, I had a dream to play for the University of Connecticut. This was heavily influenced by my family's ties to the state of Connecticut, my dad's love for UCONN, and great influential players like Rebecca Lobo. I felt it necessary to pay tribute to one of the greatest professional women athletes who made a huge impact on women in sports.
Growing up, I remember watching her play and thinking, "yeah girls can be good at basketball, really really good!" She helped lead the Huskies to an undefeated season and an NCAA championship. Not only was she great at basketball, she earned American honors for her academics as well.
