Jackie Styles

This chick's got both style and substance. Jackie Stiles is up to big things these days. She's breaking records and is looking towards a career in the WNBA.

On March 1st, 2001, Jackie Styles became the highest scoring player in NCAA women's basketball history. She broke the record with a three-pointer against Creighton college that gave her 3,123 career points. But the starting point guard is about much more than scoring points. She's also one of the school's all time leaders in assists, rebounds and steals.

Jackie grew up in the town of Chaflin, Kansas. She started playing basketball in grade 6 and by the time she was in high school, she was known around the USA as one of the top players in the country. She became the highest scoring player in Kansas high school history before starting college ball at Southwest Missouri State.

Jackie's success comes from her hard work and natural talent - but she's also very superstitious. Before every game she goes through the exact same routine. She watches Larry Bird videos every game day. When she arrives at the court, she'll always listen to Van Halen in her discman. Then, for every game she wears the same lipstick, hair band and socks(she washes them first.) She even chews the same type of gum every time she steps on the court - Big Red. Then finally, she makes sure she's the last player to leave the court after every game. Not everyone has superstitions, but Jackie's are obviously paying off.

Do you have any superstitions or routines you do before you play sports? Do you tie your shoes a certain way or listen to a certain song? your sports superstitions to Kidzworld.

Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
