Guard Tasha Dickey recently wrapped up her finally season with the Wildcats and playing collegiate basketball. She will participate in graduation ceremonies next month. Here are some of her thoughts on her senior year and her Wildcat experience.
What is the most valuable lesson you'll take with you for the future?
The one thing that I have learned and will take with me is to be happy. No matter what the outcome, always make sure that I'm happy and being happy makes everything so much better.
What is your favorite on-the-court moment?
My favorite on-the-court moment would be senior night when I was escorted my beautiful family. It was the first time in a long time that all my family was there to watch me play .
What is your favorite off-the-court moment?
When Coach Darling came to my house and we had a heart-to-heart. it really showed me that she cares for me, and she made me feel like a million bucks.
What areas have you changed the most from freshman year to senior year?
I have changed in the areas of maturity and humbleness.
What piece of advice would you give incoming freshman about playing basketball at the collegiate level?
I would tell them that it's a big change but in a good way. it makes you grow as a player and an individual. Also I would tell them to tread with caution, stay away from the party scene and, most of all, have fun and remember you were recruited for a reason and don't let anyone make you feel like you are not the best.
If you could go back, is there anything you'd change about your collegiate basketball career?
No because everything happens for a reason. I'm thankful for my scars and bruises because they make me the person I am today.
What will you miss most about Arizona basketball?
I will miss everything but, most of all, the friendships and bonds I shared with so many people.
