Kaitlyn Williams wanted McDonald’s.
At 8 years old, she was afraid to shoot the ball and made a deal with her parents that a few games into her first season, she would finally take a shot in exchange for a Happy Meal. She found herself lined up for a corner three, chucked the ball up and watched it ricochet off the side of the backboard.
Williams recalled the crowd let out a collective sigh. The memory served to motivate her to become a better shooter.
