Ashlee Anderson has played more games than any
other player on the Pitt roster - and she's still got this season and next to
wear the Blue & Gold.
With 67 career games to her credit, the Chicago
native arrived at Pitt in 2009 from one of the most heralded high school
programs in the nation (Whitney Young). "That was the greatest preparation
for me to make the next step. I felt prepared coming to Pitt as a freshman as
far as conditioning, traveling, and the competition. I knew I would be prepared
for college because we always played against the best teams."
While Anderson has grown to love Pittsburgh (the
city), it won't be replacing her affection for her hometown something she knows
'native Pittsburghers' can understand. "I don't think words can describe
my love for Chicago. For anyone that knows me, anyone that meets me, I am the
biggest Chicago fan. We have so much love for our city because it offers so
much. Growing up on the Southside of Chicago and going to school on the
Northwest end, I learned so many things to help me grow as a person and take
with me through life."
For the record, the 5-9 guard is a White Sox fan
- and in Ashlee's own words is, 'always rooting for the Bulls.'
