Quote:
In just three months, HerHoopStats has become a beacon in what had previously been a statistical desert. “HerHoopStats is a tipping point,” says Cheryl Reeve, head coach of the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx. “It represents a movement towards greater interest in women’s sports. When you have the sort of knowledge that analytics provides, the level of conversation intensifies.”

HerHoopStats is a good site. I find it a little difficult to navigate, but there's lots of good stuff there.

It has been remarkable how much attention the place has drawn in such a short space of time. I haven't spent much time at the site (because I don't really care about NCAA games), but its presence and rise can only be good for the women's game.

Isn't there another site where you can get WBB stats (maybe just WNBA)?

Yes, natstat.com has been around for a while now, but their massive downtime, refusal to take any sort of feedback, and failure to fix errors in their database make Her Hoop Stats much more worth the $20. If you tweet them with a suggestion or a correction, they actually reply! What a concept!
