5 Reasons Why Zahna Medley is a TCU Women's Basketball Legend

We'll miss seeing Z go for 3...

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Zahna Medley is G.O.A.T. And when she played the final home game of her college career Monday night, she made it official.

But Medley's legacy at TCU is written by more than just her record-setting numbers. Here are five reasons why she's a TCU women's basketball legend:

1. She is TCU's all-time leading scorer.

This is the record Medley broke in Tuesday's win over Kansas. It happened when she made a free throw in the first quarter to bring her total career points to 1,893, breaking the record previously held by Sandora Irvin. Medley has 1,911 points total and postseason play hasn't even started yet.

2. She holds the school record in career three-point field goals.

Oh, and she broke another record just last week, didn't she? Goodness.

3. She's smart.

She made the Dean's List in the Fall 2015 semester, and TCU's academic catalog states that seniors on the Dean's List must have a GPA of 3.8 or higher. Nerd.

4. She's eaten fire. Like, actual fire.

That's what this article says.

5. She gets involved with the community.

Yes, it's great to be a legend and all, but it's even better when you can be a positive influence to those around you, so maybe they can become legends, too.

(Oh, and did I mention she's dating Derrick Kindred? Oh sorry, I meant, Derrick Kindred is dating her.)

The season's not over yet! The Frogs' next stop is the Big 12 Championship on Friday, where they'll open the tournament playing Kansas...again.
