On the surface, Hazaria Washington is soft spoken and has a quiet demeanor. But get her on the basketball court, and she transforms into a fierce competitor.

Instead of being boastful about her athletic exploits, the University of Missouri–St. Louis junior guard lets her play do the talking. She’s averaging a double-double for the UMSL Tritons and a team-high 15 points and 11 rebounds a game. And she was named UMSL’s first-ever Great Lakes Valley Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week.

KSDK (Channel 5) sports anchor Renee Knotts stopped by campus to interview Washington, a communications major, and Tritons head coach Katie Vaughn. A feature story aired Nov. 29 on KSDK.
