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.

i wanted to make this post for those interested in fitness. you can post anything, whether that be sports match you saw , weight training, a marathon you want to run, progress you've made, or even questions and advice on goals you want to achieve (though i might not be a professional, i think i've listened to enough and have read enough by specialist and professionals to help others). good luck to all that are trying to improve themselves.

I do hip hop dancing and I'm also good at robot dancing. I'm not sure what it's called when people dance like when they move their bones in a way that makes it hit every beat in any electronic beat. But go on my profile and look at the video on there I posted and that's the type of dance I do along with hip hop.

Who's better? I vote FC Barcelona because Messi, Neymar and Suares are SUPER POWER (but not in Italy).
