Hoos a Legend
The day of the WNBA draft is an excellent time to reflect on the career of @UVAWomensHoops Jocelyn Willoughby, who is expected to be taken in said draft. It took two articles from the Daily Progress’ Bennett Conlin to sum her up, one that looked at her on-court accolades (leading the ACC in scoring, top-10 career in coring and rebounding, etc., etc.) and another to just touch the tip of the iceberg on her off-the-court legacy.
