Tweet, tweet, tweet for Ticha

On Tuesday, we wished Ticha a happy birthday.  On Wednesday, our sport bid her adieu as she announced her retirement from the WNBA after a stellar, 15-year career. Read her retirement letter here along with a sampling of farewell tweets. We'll add our personal goodbye to the former Old Dominion star in a Thursday post.

 You were the sole reason I watched women's hoops. ODU legend, Thank you for showing me how a true pg is supposed to play.

 You are the Walt "Clyde" Frazier of women's basketball. Your hustle, love of the game, and fashion style will be missed!

Former ODU megastar Ticha Penicheiro says the 2012 WNBA season will be her last. Sad, sad news for anyone who ever watched her play.

Ticha Penicheiro In 2008 Became The First Player In The WNBA To Record 2,000 Assists And Became The WNBA All -Time Leader In Steals!

Anne Donovan on Ticha in '98: "She is the best player in the country...She loves to play and loves to win."
