Hoyas’ Rubylee Wright has a love for hoops and art
“[My teammates will] come to me and be like, ‘Rub, what’s this play right here, what am I doing,” and I draw it up before we go out.”
Much like her ability to call plays according what’s transpiring on the court, Wright draws when overcome with inspiration.
“If I have a moment, and I feel like I want to draw, I draw,” said Wright. “I draw on the plane, on the bus. … I just pull my notepad out.”
Wright’s love for her family and her teammates have given her the perfect ingredients to play at the point: creativity, whether it be with a pen or a playbook, skill, after countless hours spent in the backyard, and a love for the game, a game that she describes as “something crazy.”
“Basketball gives you a feeling that not too many things do. When something happens and you hear the crowd, you get this feeling inside. I can’t even describe it, but it’s something crazy.”
With “God Blass My Success” blanketing her chest, Wright pondered her future after graduation and said, “[Besides basketball,] I honestly can’t even see anything else.”
“Me and Tia talk about that all of the time. We both decided we’re still going to play for a little while longer.”
