BATON ROUGE - LSU women's basketball senior guard Adrienne Webb, a second-team All-Southeastern Conference selection, participated in the "Read Across America" program by spending a morning with first graders at Sacred Heart Elementary in Baton Rouge earlier this month.
Webb and Lady Tiger assistant coach Stacie Terry read to 63 first graders, continuing the team's community service efforts throughout Baton Rouge.
"It was a very exciting and rewarding experience," said Webb. "As soon as we walked into the classroom, the kids were excited and embraced it. It really makes you feel good to go out in the community and see kids. I was once in their shoes. Going to class and getting an education is the most important thing."
Webb, a native of Madison, Ala., ranks in the top 10 in SEC in scoring this season with 14.1 points per game. The senior leads the Lady Tigers into the NCAA Tournament, which begins on March 24 in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. LSU will learn of its NCAA Tournament seed and opponent at 6 p.m. CT Monday on the ESPN "Selection Monday" show.
