For fans of the women’s game among those of us who follow the Boston Celtics, many are familiar with the career of former University of Connecticut Women’s Basketball star Ashley Battle, and her path to the WNBA and a successful career in that league and then beyond it as an NBA scout for Boston.
But for the rest of us Celtics fans who may not be so familiar with her story, the ball club put together a short video of Battle detailing her journey from Storrs, Connecticut to Boston, Massachusetts as a talent scout for the most decorated franchise in the league of all time.
Battle not only tells her tale as an individual but also touches on how she is blazing trails for WNBA players and women more generally working a job more commonly associated with men in the history of the league.
To hear her interview in full, be sure to check out the clip embedded above put together by the Celtics for their team-produced “View From the Rafters” podcast.
