College Senior Stars at Basketball and Chess

The starting guard for the University of Alabama women’s basketball team has found considerable success both on the basketball court and at the chess board. In a January 21, 2007 article in the Tuscaloosa News by sportswriter Tommy Deas, the dual career of college senior Kate Mastin is profiled.

"I have a bunch of trophies for chess," she is quoted as saying, "like my whole closet shelf." This year Kate has found another basketball-chess player in freshman guard Nikki Davis, which has sparked a new rivalry. "She thought she was the only one who knew how to play chess," Kate commented. "I took her queen like the third move."
