The Down Low
Ahead of the 2021 WNBA draft, my friend used to send me regular texts demanding that the Chicago Sky draft Dana. When asked why, he responded with the following:
- "Every UL fan loves her because she worked her ass off. She sat forever and waited for her chance and when she did she got back to back ACC POY." (Dana attributes her perseverance to her parents in this very sweet video.)
- "She loves arguing with refs and she calls them 'bro.'"
- "She does this like inside out dribble that looks so effortless but it’s like everyone else is moving in slow motion."
- "It’s incredibly impressive she’s can play that well through those lashes." (I once saw her take over a game in the final minutes, scoring 6 points, plus a rebound and a steal for the win, all after one of her false eyelashes had fallen out.)
She took a bit of a winding road, but she made it to Chicago.
