Kyndall Foli and Tyra Buss
Kyndall Foli and and IU’s All Big 10 Tyra Buss – they both love the game

Kyndall Foli – June 23, 2016 ·

As I sit here tonight and watch the NBA draft I couldn’t help but think, basketball isn’t just a sport to me. It’s a lifestyle.

I love everything about the game.

From the long practices to the nail biting games. The gym has become my home away from home. Basketball for me is a stress reliever. I have developed a deep love for this game.

I have came a long way from when I first started playing. I was a terrible shooter, I couldn’t play defense, let alone know how to read it. I just wasn’t a player.

I dedicated my off-season of my Sophomore year to work on my game. It has been the best choice I have made in my life. Now I can shoot, dribble, play defense and read it. I’m now a well rounded player.

During my Sophomore season I averaged 8.6 points per contest. I also grabbed 4.5 rebounds to go with 1.3 assists and 1.7 steals per game. I also knocked down 43 3-pointers in 14 games. I made the girls Sullivan All-County basketball team, and was selected MVP for the season by my team. That’s not too bad for a high school Sophomore.

I want to thank my coaches for pushing me to be the player I am today. Thank you to my parents for their unconditional love and support. Thank you for standing behind my decision to dedicating myself to this sport. I want to also thank my teammates for believing in me even when I didn’t. You guys are the best!

Most importantly I want to thank God for giving me the opportunity to play basketball. Without him I wouldn’t be here. Lastly, as my idol that I look up to,

Stephen Curry, said

“Be the best version of yourself in anything you do. You don’t have to live anybody else’s story.”
