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.
Hello Blue Demon Fans,
As I was heading to Houston for the State Farm Three Point Contest I was so excited -- I was going to get to wear my DePaul uniform one last time :)

Traveling to the Georgetown Intercollegiate is probably one of the most exciting and memorable experiences of the year. The afternoon we arrived in Washington D.C., we visited some of the most prestigious and renowned monuments in the nation's capital.
First stop: the Lincoln Monument. Built in honor of the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, we took pictures in front of the massive throne. The Lincoln Monument represents the values of honesty, integrity and humanity, which are also integrated in DePaul University's Mission.
Down the stairs, we took a team picture in front of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. In the background, the Washington Monument can be seen, built to commemorate General George Washington, the first President of the United States.
Walking through the National Mall, we then visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. A picture of the team was taken walking in front on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. We also walked by the National World War II Memorial. For all who served and are still serving, we say: "Thank You."
Then: direction the White House. Heavy security surrounded the White House, but it was unique to stand in front of the official residence of the President of the United States. We were later amazed by the magnitude and architecture of the Capitol Building.
After walking by the Supreme Court, we finished our visit at the Library of Congress, the oldest federal cultural institution in the United States. The Library of Congress includes three buildings, Adams, Jefferson and Madison, respectively the second, third and fourth Presidents of the United States.
Ultimately, we visited impressive cultural and architectural monuments, but most importantly we learned about the stories of men and women at the foundation of the American society. We went on to compete at the Georgetown Intercollegiate, and came back enriched with experiences and memories engraved for the rest of our lives.
