Witherspoon's signature was her tenacity and toughness. As a junior she played in 30 games despite a stress fracture in her foot and finished the season with a school-record 200 assists.
Witherspoon (now Dr. Lisa Hansen, PhD) is a professor at the University of South Florida in Tampa where she resides with her husband, Mike and her 7-month-old little girl MiKenzie Jade. She is heavily involved in the research field of active gaming and speaks internationally on the subject.
Witherspoon still follows Hokie teams and was back twice last season for football games and a women's basketball game.
"I am a Hokie through and true," she says.
