One of the thrills of a young basketball player’s professional career is to get a chance to learn from those that they look up to. Youngsters in Connecticut recently had that chance as the Sun’s Chiney Ogwumike stopped by to take part in a free basketball clinic at a YMCA center.
Ogwumike said to Fox 61 that while she was there, she pictured herself as one of those children with lofty dreams and aspirations.
Being in Connecticut has definitely been an adjustment.
I mean, it’s quaint, it’s cozy, I’m closer to the coast, but I also work for ESPN and then I play for the Connecticut Sun so it’s been a dream.
The children were taught the fundamentals of the game, then had a chance to interact further with Ogwumike in a Q&A session. Later on, they took a group picture with her and also received her autograph.
