Each week during the summer months, DartmouthSports.com will be running a segment on the women's basketball page called Tuesday Women's Basketball Trivia. We'll ask each player one question a week and you can learn the inside scoop on the women's basketball team. Happy Reading!
Why do you wear your current number?
Tia Dawson (Sophomore): My favorite team is the Celtics, who will win the playoffs this year! I look up to Kevin Garnett, who wears the Number 5, because I see him as a strong, aggressive, hard working player and that's something I'm working toward.
Faziah Steen (Senior): I wear 25 by default pretty much. In high school and AAU my number was 34 but when I came to Dartmouth that number was taken already by Sasha Dosenko. I decided to be nice and let her keep it ;-)
Abbey Schmitt (Sophomore): I was number 30 in high school and 31 was the closest I could get to that at Dartmouth.
Kamala Thompson (Sophomore): That's what I was given, although, 52 is my favorite number. When I was younger I was a fat girl and always got the higher number because it was the biggest jersey then I lost a lot of weight but kept the number.
Milica Toskovic (Sophomore): I wear number 11 for a number of reasons. The number has always been relevant to my brothers and I since we are all born in the month of November. I wore the number 11 for the three years while I played for the Serbian national team and it also seems to complement my first name pretty well, given the number of parallel lines in M-I-l-I-c-a.
Nicola Zimmer (Junior): I wore 10 the past two seasons, but am switching to 3 now that it's available. 3's a point guard thing.
Eve Zelinger (Junior): I have always worn the number 33 or 22. When I came in as a freshman neither were available so 32 was a great combination of the two. Also coincidentally March 2nd (3/2) is my birthday.
