Good News for Token Sports’ Alma Mater

Yep, Quinnipiac University has found it’s way back into the news in the world of sports. The daughter of Celtic Ray Allen just decided to play volleyball at the Div. 1 school in Connecticut.

Wellesley High School product Tierra Allen will play volleyball for Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., the university’s athletics department announced. Tierra is Celtics shooting guard Ray Allen’s daughter.
“Tierra is one of the most powerful athletes I saw last season,” Quinnipiac head coach Robin Sparks said. “She has a fantastic jump serve and hits the ball with authority. Once she adjusts to the pace of the collegiate game, she is going to be a terrific contributor.”
If Tierra is half as money as her Dad is with the 3 pointer, then this will be a big story for Quinnipiac. Then again, it is only women’s volleyball…yawn.
