Rutgers Women’s Basketball Tributes Beyonce and Destiny’s Child During Media Photoshoot


Doing a Beyonce tribute during photo and video shoot day was the official start of the Rutgers women’s basketball buzz this season.

Rutgers players produced a tribute moment to Beyonce starring a four-some group they dubbed “Vivian’s Child”. The four players in the group were Arella Guirantes, Liz Martino, Tyia Singleton, and Sakima Walker.

The name is inspired by the famed group Destiny’s Child in an ode to their Hall of Fame head coach C. Vivian Stringer, and the four players performed a choreographed piece to Beyonce’s hit song, “Crazy in Love”.

Freshman wing Liz Martino was one of the architects of the project, claiming ownership of the name of the group. Other players, including Arella Guirantes and Tekia Mack, were responsible for the choreography.

Coach Stringer makes her quick cameo at the end of the video with only one line to remember.

“We just need you to walk out and say, ‘period’. And she said OK, and she came out and did it.”

The team has been spending what time they can to develop chemistry on the court as things are still uncertain with the pandemic.

There should be even more exciting basketball-related things coming out of the Rutgers women’s basketball program in the near future, but for now, they’ll entertain the internet enough to hopefully reach Beyonce’s eyes at some point.
