Show Notes:

  • Sylvia is very humbled to be recognized as an SEC Legend but it makes her feel old
  • She's the youngest of five and she's always been competitive
  • Volleyball was her first love and was not a natural at basketball when she first started playing in middle school
  • Once she became more confident, she fell in love with basketball and started dunking a tennis ball when she was in the 7th grade
  • Started getting recruited by colleges during her sophomore year in high school and she was also recruited by other local high schools
  • Former 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 needed
  • Minnesota 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 Whalen
  • Being overseas is extremely tough and her go-to meal, when she returns to the US, is her mom's mac-n-cheese
  • Always enjoyed watching Shaq, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Kevin Garrett play
  • She doesn't want to put any time limits on how much longer she will play
  • Currently studying to be a mortician when she does stop playing and has always been a curious person and wanting to know how things work
  • Words of Wisdom from Sylvia Fowles: "Just be the best that you can be because there's only one you."
