Here is the video the Phoenix Mercury put together for Ana.
Don Lugo senior basketball star Ana Resendiz had quite the season, All she did was break the long-standing record for 3-pointers in a season set by one of that school’s most famous alums in Diana Taurasi.
Well she got a face to face meeting with the WNBA superstar recently. Taurasi paid for Resendiz, her family and coaches to make the trip to the Phoenix Mercury’s first home game of the season on May 20 against the Seattle Storm.
She got to meet Taurasi and watched the team in its game-day shoot around. She got second row seats for the game later that night and the team put together a video highlighting her achievement and meeting her idol which was played over the video board at the first time out. She was also presented a ball signed by tthe players.
“It was a great experience, very surreal,” Resendiz said. “I learned a lot just watching them.”
The Mercury lost to the Storm 81-80 although Taurasi did have 23 points and six assists.
Resendiz ended up with 136 3-pointers which also ranked her second in the country. She averaged 22.4 points a game, earning first team All-Inland Valley honors.
She is undecided on a college right now.
