Swooooooooooopes!!

Posted on: April 16th, 2013 by Lori Greene

For those of you who haven’t heard the announcement yet, Loyola just named Sheryl Swoopes as the women’s basketball head coach. One of the first stars of the WNBA, Swoopes is a three-time MVP and a three-time Olympic gold medalist. And, yes, she is also the first woman to have her own Nike basketball shoe named after her—Air Swoopes.

Hearing the news took me back to my high school days of playing basketball and college days when I remember her winning a national championship. The thoughts of the WNBA being announced come to mind too. As a fan, I am grateful for what she has done for the sport. As a new colleague, I hope she doesn’t challenge new friends and colleagues across campus to any one-on-one match ups!
