Treshenia Solomon has a statuesque physique, and a love for basketball. At 6 feet 3 inches, her height is an advantage as she stands strong and proud near the basket, ready to take on anything that comes her way.

Solomon plays post for the City College Panthers and is a key player for the team this season according to her teammates and coaches.

Solomon developed her interest in basketball from her cousin. As a young girl she wanted to fit in, and at 9 years old she started to pay attention to women’s and college basketball.

“When I started playing, it was because I wasn’t doing anything else, so it was like, you do something to pass the time, then you end up liking it,” says Solomon. “Even though I started playing because my cousins were all playing, it just kinda stuck with me.”

What started as a hobby has now become a serious interest and investment in her future, she adds.

Solomon says she would like to attend a historically black college and persue basketball as a career, but the WNBA is not where her sights lie. Rather, Solomon says, her ultimate goal is to play basketball overseas and in the Olympics.

As a key player for the Panthers this season, she believes she has the ability to achieve her goal, but not without a lot of hard work.

She is in her third season, but in previous seasons, Solomon says she was not quite focused on the game. She worked hard independently this offseason to become the very best at her game, and now her attitude and confidence on the court are at an all time high, she says.

“[Solomon has] taken it to another level, and is staring to figure it out,” says Carmichael.

With her hard work, Solomon hopes to take the Panthers to the Big-8 Championships this season.

“Championship is burning in my system,” says Solomon.

According to Solomon, the team works with perfect synergy and a chemistry  that unites them.

Zea Ziggler, a fellow teammate and Panthers guard, says Solomon was “waiting for this moment.” Since the 2009 season registration, there was an understanding that the Panthers were going to make Solomon a key player for the upcoming season.

“If I can help [Solomon] be a key player, I’m happy with that because not only is she a teammate, but a friend of mine,” says Ziggler.

Besides basketball, Solomon says she has a love for music and a strong passion for poetry.

Solomon has been on the Panthers team since 2008, and this will be her final season on the team. The women’s basketball team currently has a 4-5 record and plays its next game against Los Medanos College Dec. 10 at Solano College.
