Classroom

Briana Betz-White maintains a cumulative 3.35 grade-point average and will graduate in May with a bachelor of arts in communication, with a specialization in advertising and public relations, and a minor in business. 

Character

Betz-White is a stand-up person with a fierce, competitive and all-inclusive personality. A two-year team captain, Betz-White always puts the success and well-being of the team ahead of herself and sees all of her teammates as equals, regardless of whether they are a star forward or third-string guard. She’s the team motivator and also liaison between the coaching staff and players. She’s well-spoken with the media and continuously promotes herself and the program in the most positives ways.

Community

Betz-White is active with a variety of campus and community activities, including volunteering her time with Weinberg, where she served food and helped wash dishes for some of Baltimore’s homeless population. She also provided uplifting conversation and comfort to those struggling with difficult situations. A regular participant in Loyola’s annual Women in Sports Day, Betz-White has participated in a number of community outreach events for the university and the women’s basketball program.

Competition

Betz-White will graduate as one of the all-time Loyola greats. Playing in all 93 games throughout her career, the 5’3” guard is on track to break the program’s career record for minutes played, while she became one of just six players in program history to reach 1,000 points before entering her senior season. An All-Patriot League Rookie Team selection in 2014 and a Patriot League All-Tournament Team honoree in 2015, Betz-White also earned All-Patriot League First Team accolades a year ago after ranking fourth in the League in points (15.0 per game). A two-time Preseason All-Patriot League Team selection, Betz-White entered her senior season as the League’s top point guard, as she was the lone guard voted to the five-member preseason all-conference team this year.
