Grandfather guides Lady Raider in basketball career
Ivonne CookTaylor was on Easter break and even at 12 year old she was where she usually was — in the local gym, getting coached by her grandfather Richard Cook.
Cook had something different that day in April.
He was going to change her shot.
“I said to her ‘I am going to change your shot,’ and she was almost distraught,” Cook said. “I remember telling her ‘Well, you need to change it because if you are going to play against better players, shooting from the waist up is go not going to do it for you.’”
