While sharing a dance with R&B star Ne-Yo during Monday night’s JamFest may have topped some players’ lists, it was the visit to the Ronald McDonald House that Gray said stands out.
“It was mind-blowing hearing some of stories and seeing some of the kids. That was the thing I enjoyed the most,” Gray said.
Named Ohio’s Ms. Basketball at the end of the regular season, Gray is one of five All-Americans playing for Tennessee next year.
“It’s the first time we’ve been able to play together and we have four of us on the same team,” Gray said. “It’s been really good so far.”
While she’ll be seeing her future Tennessee teammates for years to come, many of the other All-American faces will likely be popping up as well with NCAA powerhouses Rutgers also having five recruits in tonight’s game and LSU having three including Eastmoor’s Ya-Ya Dunning.
All will get a taste of the national spotlight tonight with ESPNU carrying the game live from the Bradley Center at 7 p.m.
“I’m not worried about who’s watching,” Gray said. “I could care less if nobody was in the stands. We’re out there to have fun and show that girls can do it too.”
They’ll have another chances to show it as Gray and all but five of her fellow McDonald’s All-Americans also will be part of the WBCA All-American game in April.
