Former Hoops Star Wants To 'Bring The Joy Back In Sports'
Former Malone hoops star and Duke player Missy West is back in the north country speaking at area schools.
West, now a motivational speaker, was speaking to students in Brasher Falls Wednesday night about sports and life skills.
"We need to bring the fun back, we need to bring the joy back in sports," she said. "We need to really understand the purpose of being involved in sports and I just think it's so much more than winning.
West says she also emphasizes "being good to people, being a good teammate, being a good parent, being good to other parents, and, you know, helping a community develop and support one another."
