Chamique is the reason for my one and only ESPN highlight. I was going up for a lay up and out of no where-- Chamique blocked my shot. When my teammates saw that on ESPN, you know they teased me.
Oh well, when I read that Chamique had written a book about her life and her struggles with depression, I had to get it. She entered Tennessee as a freshman the same year I entered at Memphis. This was the time frame Tennessee Lady Vols basketball team was on fire winning back-to-back-to-back national championships. So getting this book meant I could learn what was going on behind the scenes at the college program.
Boy did I learn so much more. I learned just how much Chamique Holdsclaw and I related and how she went from a New York kid living in the projects to a super star at Tennessee and the WNBA and then disappearing from the scene and why.
This is an AWESOME book for every girls basketball player, fan, and coach!
