What Rocks: Latia Magee
Georgetown University currently has two basketball teams ranked in the top 25 nationally. This is common territory for the men’s team, but not for the women’s squad. A huge part of this new success is sophomore forward Latia Magee, who has started every game this year for the Hoyas.
Hailing from Tulsa, Okla., Magee came to Georgetown as a highly touted forward with lots of talent. Although she had a very strong freshman year, Magee has improved immensely off the court since her freshman year.
“Last year, it was all new,” Magee said. “Now, I know my role on the team, and I come completely prepared to play basketball when I get to the gym.”
Magee is propelled more by her determined work ethic than natural talent, which is reflected in her style of play—aggressive defense and unafraid to hit the floor to win a scrap for the ball.
Magee had one of her best games of the season against St. John’s on February 2 when she racked up twelve points, seven rebounds, and five assists.
“My teammates helped me out a lot that game, they really pumped me up,” Magee said. “I knew that my team needed me to step up that game, and I was able to work hard and play well.”
