Good work! Did you listen to Toi podcast? ** -- WHOODAT 07/22/2020 11:09AM
Inside and out with Dani Lawson review.
Probably one of the best shows I've listen to thus far as Dani Lawson sits and talks with CTT. Much was told about last year chemistry of the team of the seniors having a huge gap and being so separate against the 1st years. The 1st years on how they had to work together as a team while learning through CTT and coaching staff as they try to create a vision for the team while trusting the process. We also got to know Dani at a much personal level. Yes, this was good yall!!
Dani states that while in quarantine, she is studying law school in which she says " It's Going" with a smile. CTT stated that its not for the fainted hearts. Lawson agreed and said that she is in it for the fight and that she's losing a little bit but she is trying. A challenge indeed for her, but she is working very hard in studying Law. CTT gave her words of encouragement and stated that its a good thing cause the work she will put in law school, will be well worth it in the end and "Take it like a Champ".
Dani also co-created and is the Vice President of a group on grounds that's called BOSS ( Black student athletes Offering Service and Support). She stated that they support the black student athletes experience and offer support through the college process. The group is now working on an introduction for the 1st years that's still in the works.
Dani states that she likes to write. During her spare time she likes to read and writes poetry, skits and movie themes whenever she have the time to write it. She's also into politics.
Very good questions came in and one fan asked CTT if she wanted to coach in the NBA. She stated that she did at one time but she really like the college experience and really like it at UVA. She also stated that she likes to teach the players and watch them grow. CTT did state that she still have an aspiration of going back into law school herself and it's like one of those things that's sitting on her shoulders. She had plans of going into law school until the WNBA arrive and her career took off for the next 12 years. She said while at UVA or while she is coaching that coaching will be her focus. Law School, if she wanted to complete it, will have to happen after coaching.
What's the biggest thing you learned from last season, is a question from a fan during the show. Dani replied, "To stay consistent, or like,.. to keep consistency or being determined." She stated the team had a lot of games they started games inconsistent and then pulled off victories when they became consistent during games. Her focus is to remain consistent at all times. CTT stated that next year's team will have youth and that the players have different personalities that she thinks will work well together. The Veteran, such as Dani, London, Tiana and Emily will be leaders for the team next year. CTT told Dani that when she does talk on the court ( she doesn't say much), players listen and she needs her to be more vocal next year. She stated Dani will have to be a leader.
I really like Dani, well rounded, smart individual who will be leading the way for our WBB program here at UVA. I think the players really look up to Dani and hopes shes have a great senior year. Happy that she is a Hoo. We are rooting for you Dani, go ahead and lead the way!!!! Wahoowa
