Next year in Tampa, Fla., the site of the 2015 Final Four, might be the time the next generation of UConn stars makes it ultimate play in the world of women’s basketball.
But for now, all kids like Gabby Williams can do is watch and wonder and daydream about what might lay ahead for them. And she is doing it in Nashville, live and in person.
“This year’s Final Four is going to be really exciting for me to watch, because I know that I’m actually going to be at UConn in just a couple months,” Williams said Sunday morning. “It’s a lot more surreal, that it’s actually going to be me out there next year! This is actually my first time being at the Final Four and so far the atmosphere has been awesome. The fans have been so great and the games haven’t even started yet!
“It’s also really crazy to me that if they win and go undefeated, it’ll be up to us incoming freshman to keep that streak going! It’s pressure, but it’s the kind of pressure you want as a basketball player especially when you’re going to a school like UConn. I just can’t believe that it’s finally almost time to for me to officially be a Husky.”
