Lindsay One of 32 Participants at Point Guard College
Oct. 4, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana senior Whitney Lindsay was one of 32 participants, joining 11 point guards that played in the 2010 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament including National Champion UConn, at the Point Guard College's "College Athlete" Session from Aug. 9-13, 2010 at Emmanuel College in Boston.
Lindsay participated in a five-day, four-night program designed to teach players how to train effectively, play intelligent basketball, become "coaches on the court," and demonstrate leadership during basketball games, practices and everyday life. She was one of three point guards from the Big Ten Conference.
The 5-7 point guard from Mansfield, Ohio, averaged 7.4 points, 3.1 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 30 games as a junior.
What sets Point Guard College apart is the teaching that takes place off of the basketball court. In addition to time on the basketball court, attendees spent time in the classroom lectures three times a day analyzing basketball video footage, studying the details of winning basketball, learning about basketball leadership, and communication skills that will be valuable on the basketball court and in everyday life.
