Lovings Reaches Out in the Community
May 24, 2013
FORT WORTH, Texas – Senior women’s basketball player Latricia Lovings has made her way into the community this summer, donating her free time to the Tarrant Area Food Bank.
Lovings, who closed the 2012-13 season ranked No. 3 in the NCAA in blocked shots, has spent the first couple weeks of her summer separating donated food to send to food banks around the surrounding areas, while also packing backpacks for younger aged children. She has also helped serve food each week to those less fortunate.
“I've usually done all of my community service through basketball, but this summer I decided to give back to the community, helping out the people who are less fortunate,” said Lovings. “The Bible says in Matthew 5:16 ‘In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father who is in heaven.’
Lovings ranked second in the Big 12 in blocked shots with 3.6 this past season and was one of just four players to rank in the top 10 in the Big 12 in rebounding and top 5 in blocked shots. She had more blocks this season than in her first two years combined with 109 and moved into No. 2 all-time in TCU history in blocked shots
“Basketball has been my God given talent and helping others is something that I truly love to do,” said the 6-foot-3 post-player. “Giving back to the community in this way is something special. It not only puts a smile on the faces of the people I'm helping, but also puts a bigger smile on mine.”
