From Jump Balls to Curtain Calls: Kendall Hackney’s Second Love

On the court, former Northwestern Wildcats women’s basketball star Kendall Hackney could do it all: hit a three, knock down a jump shot, post up on defense and grab a rebound. Now, she finds herself starring in a new role – Northwestern’s Waa-Mu Show. Hackney found a way to finally realize her love for theater after her collegiate basketball career ended in March. The show runs from May 3rd to the 12th in Cahn Auditorium on Northwestern University’s Evanston campus. The video below will air this evening on Northwestern News Network’s Sports Night. WNUR Sports’ Ryan Connelly Holmes has the story. You can also find the full audio to Ryan’s interviews with both Hackney and Northwestern women’s basketball head coach Joe McKeown below, with the video piece directly below that.
