Loss is extremely motivating

By Elena Delle Donne

Kansas/Delaware
Elena Delle Donne got a taste of the NCAA tournament and wants more.


Although this season ended far sooner than I ever wanted, the NCAA tournament was a journey that I am extremely glad our team was able to take part in. The state of Arkansas showed us nothing but hospitality and treated our team so well. Little Rock is rich in history, which was fun to explore with such a close-knit team.

The tournament was unlike anything this team has ever been a part of, and the national exposure is something we have been working toward all season. Our team has made history all season long, and we know we've only just begun. This loss has been extremely motivating, and I am already looking forward to next year. You haven't seen the last of us yet!
