By Richmond Weaver

Show Notes:

Sylvia is very humbled to be recognized as an SEC Legend but it makes her feel oldShe's the youngest of five and she's always been competitiveVolleyball was her first love and was not a natural at basketball when she first started playing in middle schoolOnce she became more confident, she fell in love with basketball and started dunking a tennis ball when she was in the 7th gradeStarted getting recruited by colleges during her sophomore year in high school and she was also recruited by other local high schoolsFormer LSU Head Coach Sue Gunter told her things that she didn't want to hear which she really appreciated and decided to attend LSU instead of Tennessee or Florida St.Fans in Chicago have still been very supportive of her decision to request a trade to play elsewhere and she would have sat out the entire season if neededMinnesota was the only team she wanted to play for because she felt they had a true chance to win and she already had played with Seimone Augustus, Maya Moore, Rebekkah Brunson, and Lindsay WhalenBeing overseas is extremely tough and her go-to meal, when she returns to the US, is her mom's mac-n-cheeseAlways enjoyed watching Shaq, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Kevin Garrett playShe doesn't want to put any time limits on how much longer she will playCurrently studying to be a mortician when she does stop playing and has always been a curious person and wanting to know how things workWords of Wisdom from Sylvia Fowles: "Just be the best that you can be because there's only one you."
