Benton Harbor Excessive College graduate Kysre Gondrezick makes his dwelling debut for Indiana Fever

(WNDU) – Benton Harbor-owned Kysre Gondrezick is living her childhood dream as the 2016 Michigan Miss Award winner begins her WNBA career.

For the second game in a row, Gondrezick got off the bench because of the fever as she paved her way from college play to the WNBA .

Her mother Lisa, grandfather Louis, and brother Grant made the three-hour drive from Michigan to Bankers Life Fieldhouse for Kysre’s first home game.

Off the bench, Gondrezick played 10 minutes on her home debut. She didn’t score but made three assists when the fever fell on the New York Liberty 73-65.

Gondrezick knows her success in the WNBA won’t come overnight, and she looks forward to doing the hard work and giving everything for the fever.

“The game is still the same,” said Gondrezick. “The players are just stronger and faster, but the game is still the same. I’m just trying to find my way on the offensive with what the coach is supposed to do in the time given to me and just keep learning. This is a year of learning for me – learning from my teammates, the style of play, the physicality of the league and learning staff from people and players. “

The journey is just beginning for Gondrezick and she hopes to make Benton Harbor proud every step of the way.

Gondrezick and the Fever are back on Wednesday as seeks its first win of the season against the Connecticut Sun.
