HOW YOU WILL IMPROVE YOUR GAME WITH US
"After completing a four-year basketball scholarship at Duke University, winning two ACC championships and going to the Final Four twice, I would strongly recommend the college experience to anyone. Not only did I have the opportunity to play at one of the top ranked college basketball programs in the United States, I also received a free education and a bachelor's degree in science from one of the top academic institutions in America. I am currently in camp with the Connecticut Sun of the WNBA and I owe much of my basketball development to my time playing NCAA women's basketball. I have known Sam Tomlinson for many years and she has always given me great advice throughout my college career and is very knowledgable on the college application and recruiting process. I would recommend seeking the advice of someone like Sam before looking into college as she understands the system well and knows how to find a good fit for players of all different skill levels. Sam is well connected with the college basketball world in the States and her focus and enthusiasm can effectively open up doors for anyone that is serious about playing on an athletic scholarship in America."
