Courtney Paris is off the hook

April 8, 2009

Arguably the best women’s college basketball player in the nation, Oklahoma’s Courtney Paris stated that she would pay back her four years of tuition if her Sooners didn’t win the national championship this year.  After making a run to the final four, Paris and her teammates got ousted by Louisville.  Right after the game, Paris claimed that she would stick to her word and pay back the money.  According to Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione, Oklahoma will not seek that money from Paris.  She has done so much in the past four years for the University of Oklahoma that it would be a rude gesture to accept the money from her.  Plus, WNBA players don’t get lucrative contracts right out of college.  Unlike their counterparts in the NBA, WNBA players don’t become overnight millionaires.  The gesture itself showed what kind of an individual Courtney Paris is.  Although the Sooners didn’t win the national championship, she symbolizes what a leader is all about.
