Bringing the SKY skills to Milwaukee with WNBA Rookie Imani Boyette

(MILWAUKEE, WI) – On October 22, 2016, IOU Sports and the Milwaukee Aces and will host the Imani Boyette Basketball Skills Clinic from 11:00-1:00pm at Cardinal Stritch University for girls’ ages 8-17 years old.

The 6’7 rookie center for the Chicago Sky, Imani Boyette, is no stranger to basketball; in fact, she’s been around it her whole life. The daughter of WNBA Hall of Famer, Pamela McGee and the sister of JaVale McGee, of the Golden State Warriors; Boyette said “It’s literally no place I go where someone doesn’t say ‘yeah, I know your mom’ or I played with your mom”, however, she’s well on her way to making her own name in professional sports. Imani had a stellar rookie season with the Chicago Sky averaging 8 PPG, 8 RPG and 2 BPG and played an enormous role in extending the Sky’s playoff run with the memorable OT rejection against the Minnesota Lynx.

Off the court Boyette is the wife of Texas Longhorns football player Paul Boyette Jr., and a huge fan of the rapper 50 Cent, who she convinced to attend a Chicago Sky game after an extensive Twitter campaign requesting his presence; most importantly, Imani enjoys giving back to youth and she is always willing to pass these special skills down to young girls who have the same dream as her. This opportunity of a lifetime should be taken advantage of. To register for this event use the link: IMANI BOYETTE CLINIC
