Keisha Hampton Checks in From World University Games Team Trials

Hello Everyone,

This is Keisha Hampton checking in from Colorado Springs. This is my last day here in Colorado participating in the USA World University Game Trials! This has been a great experience for me the second time around. The USA Trials has provided me with the opportunity to develop myself as a basketball player, meet new people, and play against the best collegiate players in the Nation.  Even though I am here trying to make a new team, I miss my DePaul team and know they are back in Chicago finishing up our last week of Spring workouts.  

The facilities here are great! There are a lot of different athletes here from different sports training for different World Championships and Olympics. Just seeing athletes working so hard in preparation for something that might be a year from now inspires me to work even harder. Also, it is fun being coached by coaches that I have played against during this past season.  It gives me an opportunity to see a different side of them.

In workouts, I have had the opportunity to work on both my guard and post skills. Yesterday, I watched the younger girls workout and scrimmage against each other and they were really competitive! I think that I played pretty well so far today, and I even took a charge! Right now I'm heading off to my second and final session of scrimmages for the day and tomorrow I will find out whether or not I made the team. Wish Me Luck!
