Dixon was a beast while at KU. I gained a new respect for women's hoops when I played against her at Robinson. She lite me up like a Christmas tree. TD, AA, and LW... those are some of the best girls I have ever seen play and the great thing is they all were 'Hawks.

I am happy for Tamecka. She's legendary at KU and has had a great WNBA career. I also played against her at Robinson. Fortunately I didn't share the same experience as Toto but I suspect she was taking it easy on me :).

She's super cool too. I remember standing behind her in line at Strong Hall, waiting to register for classes. We chatted for a bit - she was really smart and down to earth.
