Six steals and 10 points … and a triple major to boot! Way to go Nicky! Everyone for Tennessee is stepping up … but Hornbuckle still needs to get on track! It’s 37-29 at the half. Nicky is playing the way she did in last year’s final, and the Tennessee pressure has Stanford totally discombobulated. Fourteen turnovers in the first half … and nearly 50% of ’em Nicky’s. I wonder what her three majors are!
Dewd and Paula LR just called in. Both of them are cheering for Stanford … so Jules says she’s not answering the phone anymore … because they are just dissing Tennessee in irrelevant, name-calling sorts of ways.
Ace is looking strong … Ice is having her moments, but struggling a bit, too.
Okay, here’s the skinny on Nicky … “Quite the scholar, Nicky is currently pursuing a major in sociology/criminal justice and additional majors in political science and legal studies…Was a member of the National Honor Society and a four-year High Honor Roll recipient at St. Peter’s for Girls…In addition to her exploits on the hardwood, Anosike also lettered twice in track and once in soccer during her prep career…Chose Tennessee over Connecticut, Georgia and Virginia in order to improve her game and grow mentally as well as physically…Lists being selected as an All-American as her biggest thrill to date in basketball…The late Johnnie Cochran and Beyonce Knowles are the famous persons she most admires…Hopes to become a lawyer after her playing career…Has seven siblings including: Nneoma, 28, Rotanna, 27, Ikenna, 25, Ifesinachi, 24, Anulika, 22, Oderah, 15, and Ejimofor, 8…Nkolika Nonyelum Anosike was born on Feb. 27, 1986, in Brooklyn, N.Y…Her mother is Ngozi Anosike.” (From the Tennessee website …)
