ASU’s Britney Wright: In It To Win It

The Black Beat reports: Britney Wright is playing to win it all for the third consecutive year as she wraps up her last few games with the Lady Hornets before graduating this May.

The forward/guard began playing basketball at just age 6. After becoming anxious to develop new skills, Wright joined an organized basketball team at 12-years-old. She used to “hang with the guys” and watch her brothers have fun playing ball as she studied some of their moves. Not to mention her mother was a ‘hooper’ when she was younger, so basketball runs deep in the family.

“I spent several days just watching my brothers and cousins play basketball outside in the backyard,” the Detroit native said. “My cousin Robert actually used to play around with me and beat me and from there on we always played each other and the love I had for basketball just came naturally.”
