Senior Tyra Grant's collegiate resume is staggering.
She has led the team in scoring every season since her freshman year. She has been named to an All-Big Ten team. She is about to be the fourth ever Lady Lion to score 2,000 points in her career.
However, there is one thing Grant still needs to check off of her list.
"I really wish that for my last year, we can do something like Jamelle Cornley, Stanley Pringle and Danny Morrissey," she said. "[They] got to go out with a bang, regardless of the fact that it wasn't in the NCAA tournament. That was still a big thing to be invited and to win something of that magnitude."
After going 35-52 in their three seasons with the Lady Lions, the four seniors on the team are hungry to finish off their collegiate careers in fashion.
The Lady Lion seniors looking to finish off their college careers with at least their first-ever winning record are Grant, Nicole Arcidiacono, Meredith Monroe and Meggan Quinn.
While Grant is the obvious leader on the court, all four play a huge role in leading the Lady Lions.
Quinn, who will be sitting out the entire season due to an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear, will be instrumental in leading the team from the bench.
In what she calls an assistant-coach-type role, Quinn plans to teach the new players the ropes while recovering from her injury.
The other two seniors, Monroe and Arcidiacono, don't fill up the box score like their teammate Grant.
Nevertheless, both still play a role coming off the bench while guiding and mentoring the younger players on the team in practice and off the court.
"Those seniors have worked really hard for four years, and we really want to send them out with a bang," junior Janessa Wolff said. "I mean, everyone else wants to win too, but it's their last year, so it's really important."
The four seniors have played a big role in helping the freshmen get acclimated to the college game.
Coach Coquese Washington said she really wants them to experience postseason play in their last season because they have been so supportive of their new teammates.
She has noticed the same feelings from her players.
"I think all of our players, they really want to send them out on a high note," Washington said. "We think about that a lot. We don't talk about it a lot, but it's definitely in the back of our minds.
