After playing four semesters as a scholar athlete, she will be graduating with her Master of Public Policy in May 2018. Briana is pictured in the center with Mista Wilt on the left and Connie Wilt on the right. These DZ sisters and Mother & daughter team came to support Briana at a recent game and presented Briana with a lovely bouquet. Congratulations Briana!
