BREA BEAL: PLAYING ON COLLEGE BASKETBALL’S BEST TEAM
Hailing from Rock Island, Illinois, Brea was the oldest of four having three younger brothers looking up to her. Her talent for basketball was apparent at an early age and on full display by the time she was in high school. She was named Illinois Ms. Basketball three times, was the Gatorade Illinois Player of the Year another three times, a McDonald’s All-American, and the number 3 wing player in the country her senior year.
After compiling a ridiculous amount of offers, Brea selected the University of South Carolina where she continues her dominance today. Her team is currently the #1 ranked women’s NCAA basketball team with high hopes of making it to the tournament finals after a nail-biting loss to Stanford in the college basketball tournament last year.
Listen in to today’s episode to hear how Brea manages to stay at the top of her game, without compromise.
