THIS IS EPISODE 450 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Kelsey Plum was selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 WNBA Draft by the San Antonio Stars. She was named to the WNBA All-Rookie team in 2017 and has played her last two seasons in Las Vegas after the team relocated from Texas to Nevada. She was featured along with teammate A’ja Wilson in the Winter 2019 issue of Sports Spectrum Magazine.
Plum shined in college at the University of Washington, where he helped the Lady Huskies reach the Final Four in 2016. In 2017, she was the Naismith College Player of the Year and won the John Wooden Award as the top women’s college basketball player. Her 3,527 points scored in her four-year career at Washington are the most all time in Division I women’s college basketball.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Plum about the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, being the No. 1 overall pick, her prolific career at Washington, feeling the weight of expectations, how her faith in the Lord grew in college, and how adversity has helped her re-align her walk with Christ.
In life we make plans, God laughs
