Whether making history on the hardwood at Harvard, scoring buckets in the WNBA and overseas, or sitting courtside as an executive with the Boston Celtics, Allison Feaster has typically displayed a calm demeanor.

But as she reflected on her groundbreaking journey recently, her emotions got the best of her.

“I didn’t get here by myself,” Feaster told The Undefeated. “My mom had to work so hard. She worked hard and by herself. And there’s so many people along the way who invested in me. … and so it’s not me. It’s not me and I don’t ever think that it’s me doing this. I am a product of those who are important to me and I am a champion for those who are coming after me.”

The basketball world first became familiar with Feaster when she led Division I women’s basketball in scoring with 28.5 points per game during the 1997-98 season and led Harvard to an upset win in the NCAA tournament over top-seed Stanford. She went on to play 10 seasons in the WNBA for Los Angeles, Charlotte and Indiana, and also played overseas in Portugal, France and Spain.
