USG Event Recap: Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA)


USG members at the 2022 WBCA Convention

My weekend at the WBCA Final Four coaches’ convention was a once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget. I did not go into the weekend expecting anything, I just went and embraced every opportunity and tried to live in every moment. With it being my first experience, it unfolded in a way that I could not have imagined. I met so many different coaches from many different teams from all over the country from every level of collegiate basketball. I connected with a lot of great individuals and learned from some of the nation’s greatest coaches and former players. I loved every on-court session that I attended that was presented to us. I also enjoyed the roundtable talks along with the knowledge we gained from well-known speakers. One of my favorite parts of the convention was the FCA service that we went to on Sunday morning which was followed by a Kay Yow breakfast event. The message from the service was fantastic and the Kay Yow event was special as well. I am already looking forward to going next year in Dallas. My experience was great, but I was not used to the weather in Minnesota. It was cold for me, but it is was something new to go along with my overall experience. I saw things in the city of Minneapolis that I have never seen before. Overall, my weekend with the WBCA and being with USG was one for the books. I most certainly saw God working a lot in my life during my weekend in Minneapolis. A year ago, I would not have imagined myself in the position I am in today. I also thank USG for allowing me to have that opportunity and to help me get there. My knowledge has grown, and I learned so much from that one weekend, and I will never forget for as long as I live.
