Despite being in the thick of NCAA softball playoff season, my mind took a brief detour to the hardwood. Yesterday, I interviewed Loyola basketball player Sitori Tanin.
Sitori is wrapping up her junior year at Loyola, where she is majoring in advertising and PR. She also is starring on the basketball court, seeing her stats improve across the board each season.
Despite Loyola struggling last season, the team showed plenty of heart and ability. A big part of that came from Sitori, who, due to other injuries, often logged more minutes than Coach Allison Guth would have liked.
Along with her basketball achievements and classroom studies, Sitori is carving a niche on YouTube. Her videos are a mix of personal, sports, and fun content. It really appeals to all ages, although Sitori says part of her desire is to help younger students get a feel for college life.
Sitori is a star on and off the court. I have had the pleasure of watching her from the courtside press table. She is all you would want in a player. This was my first long conversation with Sitori, but you can easily see she is a quality person off the court.
