    you have been through more than most. Can’t wait to see you on the court again. Way to bring it! Fred and Kay!

  2. Can’t say I enjoyed reading about your travails this past two years. Your grandmother Bev has kept me up to date on your continuing setbacks, and progresses. Watched you play in New Orleans, and caught most of your late season games here in California , courtesy of ROKU. Watched the NCAA tournament game, and felt that had you been able to play, it would have had a different ending. Your defense of their top scorer would have made the difference.

    No doubt this has made you a stronger athlete and person. We continue to love and support you for wherever this journey takes you. Just enjoy the ride .

    Becca, loved your piece. It answered many questions we had about your injury. We were disappointed when you came off floor in Manhattan, sure not as disappointed as you were.

    Here’s hoping the 17 -18 season will be your best.

    P.S. your writing skills are amazing.

    Go Bulldogs see you in Nov at the Knapp

    Becca, this is wonderful. Beautifully written. I’ve no doubt that you COULD write a book if you wanted. Can’t wait to hear more!!

      You are one tough cookie!! I played hoops with your mom in high school basketball camps and the at Benedictine. She was a tough player. Sounds like you take after her a bit. Good luck with your recovery

      Love Lange

    You might thing it was just the pain meds after surgery….but I think a book might just be an awesome idea! But for now even though this blog is for a class I think you might be surprised how many young athletes it touches and helps! I am in awe of your strength and determination through both some physical and emotional times! Keep sharing the posts on your blogs! Thoughts and prayers are going out to you! 👍😃🙏🏀💙

  10. Wow, you do not know me (I know your mother). I’ve just come awake from a cough.
    1:20am. – best true story of my day so far. I am ENCOURAGED. FOCUSED.

    Have you thought about a career in Sports Psychology? Is there such a thing? It “feels like” to me…. as a Professor often quoted in a class of 200 that I attended at UMKC….. “The river is not the river’s bed.”
    For half the semester I didn’t understand but then, it dawned on me, “Go deep, what can I glean from this or any, experience which will catapult me into helping others be the best version of themselves?”
    There really is no greater work.
    You got this.

    First off, you are a wonderful young lady. Secondly, your team is a whole lot different when you are on the floor. By different, I mean much better.

    Heal well, feel better and get back to doing what you love!! Oh, and great job with this project. Nicely done!

  12. Carol Lipsmeyer

    Becca! You should write a book! You have a beautiful way with words and are able to convey feeling and emotions to the reader! I’m so proud of you girl! You’ve hung in there and become Strong! What a journey you’ve been in! Thank you for sharing your story. I’m looking first to reading more!
    Health and healing to you ! And many more Blessings!

    Oh Becca you are wise beyond your years. Your parents I know are so proud of you. I have had tough experiences in my life and it has taken 67 years to come to term with those experiences. Your faith, your family and your conviction has served you well. You are in my prayers daily.

    Becca,
    That was a truly amazing saga of your pain, but intense determination! You wrote about those two years so well and explicitly, that I certainly can see a book written in the future. You have a special family, and I am so pleased that I have met all of you! Hope to see you in Chatham this summer!!

    What a story! Good luck to you in the future!!! Alongside you, I also followed Lizzy. She went to high school at BS with my stepdaughter and followed her basketball career. As a St.Mary’s grad, I am always interested in our “school family” and anything that happens to our “group”. I graduated with your aunt Melissa. On the lighter side of things…..I know you had a great time in Italy ( my mother country), maybe you miss all the wonderful food!!! That will heal anything!!! Buon Fortuna e tantissimi auguri per una guarigione completa!!! Now, you have some time to study up for the translation!!! Ciao.

  16. Liz Gardner

    Whatever happens, you most certainly have a career in writing. Your story was captivating. You are one smart chic. (Like mother, like daughter)
    I wish you nothing but the best. Heal and move forward…. the possibilities for you are endless.
    Get well soon.

    First of all, you’re a great writer. You might want to pursue that someday. Just sayin. It would make Mema proud. Secondly, you are a warrior and I’m proud of you. You never stop. And THAT will make you a superstar in whatever you choose down the road. I miss the days when you used to live at our house on weekends and do nothing but play video games and pal around with Andrew. But WOW…you’ve grown up to be such an amazing leader. And I just love bragging about you to everyone I know. Keep fighting, girl. We love u and are rooting for you.

    Becca, thank you for sharing. You have such a determined spirit. You look on the bright side, even when you don’t feel like it. Sometimes we learn the most when we need to be still. I will continue to pray for your healing. It is amazing how you have supported your teammates, even when you couldn’t play. Matthew 11: 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take care of yourself!

    Wow so well done! I read every word. You are an inspiration in so many ways! And there is always a silver lining in adversity and you have found many. Cannot wait to see you all healed this summer. xoxo
