Can L.A.’s newest star lift up a legendary women’s basketball program?

JuJu Watkins’ hands felt strange as she walked down the hallway. They were tingling and didn’t feel like her own. However, she brushed the feeling off and prepared for her first college basketball game at the beginning of her USC career. She had been teased about her nerves by her teammates, but when she stepped onto the court, she proved them wrong. No longer jittery, she scored 32 points and made an impressive debut, helping USC secure a win over Ohio State. She exhibited her impressive skills and maintained a positive mindset throughout the game, despite missteps. The Ohio State coach was particularly impressed by her composure and perseverance. Her determination ultimately led her to choose USC, as she wanted to build something and make a positive impact, as her great-grandfather had done in her neighborhood.
