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!
