Gabrielle Rush is feeling a lot better this week.
It’s not just that the Princeton University senior guard’s fall exams are behind her, it’s that the Tigers women’s basketball team is back to winning.
“We’ve been super motivated and focused on ourselves to get where we need to be over the whole month of January,” said Rush.
“It was finally exciting to get to suit up against another team and show we have gotten better over this month and we’re coming for everyone else. That was exciting to have that show in this weekend and get those wins to move up a little in the rankings.” more
