Babcock McGraw writes: Iowa’s sharp-shooting junior guard Jaime Printy has been a force in the Big Ten since she first stepped on campus. She was named the league’s Freshman of the Year two seasons ago, and last year as a sophomore, she became the youngest player in Iowa history to reach the 1,000-point mark. Now, as a seasoned veteran, Printy is hoping to carry the Hawkeyes to a Big Ten title. It’s a goal she’s had for as long as she can remember. Growing up about 40 minutes from the Iowa campus, Printy always knew she was going to be a Hawkeye. She’s even the daughter of a former Hawkeye athlete. Mom Kelly ran track at Iowa. Printy’s strong connections to Iowa don’t end there. Listen in to find out who lives two doors down the street from Printy back in her hometown of Marion. It’s further proof that her career at Iowa was entirely meant to be. Also, Printy gives us her tips for being a good shooter … and she dishes about which player in the Big Ten she likes going up against the most and what she likes to do in her free time.
