Indiana senior Whitney Lindsay was one of 32 female participants, joining 11 other point guards who played in the 2010 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament, at the Point Guard College’s “College Athlete” Session from Aug. 9-13, 2010, at Emmanuel College in Boston.
Lindsay participated in a five-day, four-night basketball program designed to teach players how to train effectively, play intelligent basketball, become “coaches on the court,” and demonstrate leadership during basketball games, practices and everyday life. She was one of three point guards from the Big Ten Conference.
The 5-foot 7-inch tall point guard from Mansfield, Ohio, averaged 7.4 points, 3.1 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 30 games as a junior.
What sets Point Guard College apart is the teaching that takes place off of the basketball court. In addition to time on the basketball court, attendees spent time in classroom lectures three times a day analyzing basketball video footage, studying the details of winning basketball, and learning about basketball leadership and communication skills that will be valuable on the basketball court and in everyday life.
Indiana head women’s basketball coach Felisha Legette-Jack announced that PGC alum Whitney Lindsay, All-America and All-Big Ten candidate Jori Davis, along with Andrea McGuirt will be the 2010-11 Indiana Women’s Basketball team captains.
The three seniors were a part of Legette-Jack’s first recruiting class at Indiana University and have served key roles as Hoosiers.
