What’s happening Sky Fans! We’ve kept our streak alive… 4 weeks in a row with a player signing! Chicagoland basketball fans have to like this one… we’re bringing Felicia Chester back to play some ball in Chitown!
Felicia is a great fit for our roster. The former DePaul power forward is 6’3, can operate at both the high and low post offensively and has the athletic ability to defend multiple positions.
Let me give you the history of Felicia coming “back” to Chicago. Last year I flew to Chicago to see the DePaul vs. Notre Dame game with our owner Michael Alter. It was almost exactly one year ago, February 28, 2011. Do you remember the game? DePaul’s amazing win over ND at McGrath-Phillips Arena? It was one of the better college basketball games I saw last year. Felicia and the Blue Devils were playing great coming into the game. It was senior night. Felicia had scored double figures in 5 of her previous 8 games and there was a lot of “buzz” about this game. Well, on this night she rose to the occasion! 8/14 from the field (she hit a 3), 6 boards and 20 points in 39 minutes! The most important stat of all…. a W! It was a great game and a great win for DePaul. One game does not a career make. Her combined body of work throughout her DePaul career and a great game on a BIG night earned her the 14th overall pick in the 2011 WNBA Draft. (*That is the highest drafted DePaul player, ever.)
