Ritchie Looking for an Opportunity
Lead a nationally ranked basketball team in points, steals, blocks and rebounds as a guard and you've got an impressive resume.
"I gave everything I could to this program and I'm thankful to be apart of it," said Adrian Ritchie, the career 3pt leader in Green Bay Phoenix history.
She's hoping that resume comes across the desk of a pro team soon.
With the book closed on her stellar career as a Phoenix she's focused on the next step, waiting for a call from the WNBA or packing her bags to play abroad.
"It's frustrating in a way. You lose control," said Ritchie. "Just hoping you did enough where someone's going to watch you and give you a jersey. That's what it's all about to me. If you tell me you want me on your team, I'll be there and I'll give you everything I have. Until someone does that, I'm just going to prepare and do everything I can."
The De Pere native continues to work out in Green Bay, knowing she's capable of succeeding in an environment outside of her home town.
"I feel really good about my time here and it's sad that it's over, but a good thing must come to an end. It cant last forever."
When asked what her alternative would be to a professional career in basketball, Ritchie reiterated her desire to play, but wouldn't rule out a stint on Kevin Borseth's coaching staff.
"He told me I have a job whenever I want. As jokingly as that was or if he's serious, who knows, [but] hopefully the next spot will be in a new country and after that, we'll see."
