Aurora Christian’s Anna Griffin cites connection with former WNBA star Tina Thompson for committing to Virginia: ‘As a person, she’s even more impressive.’ (Aurora Beacon-News, 9/28/2020)

“I know Anna loves the coaching staff — that was a big part of it,” Aurora Christian coach Burney Wilkie said. “Because of COVID, she was never on the campus, but when you get offered by someone like Tina Thompson, you’re listening for sure.”

Griffin said she was wowed by more than Thompson’s resume.

“She’s a Hall of Famer, but as a person, she’s even more impressive,” Griffin said. “She’s easy to talk to, so down-to-earth and just really cool.”
