San Antonio Stars head coach Dan Hughes, who is probably saying, "What? You don't like my necktie?" Wink



The guy on the right-side background is assistant coach Steve Shuman.

This was voted as the #1 moment in WNBA playoff history: T-Spoon's desperation shot in Game #2 of the 1999 Finals.

Quote:
"Liberty out of timeouts. They've got to go the length of the floor. Weatherspoon at the buzzer a three...OHHHHHHHHHH!!! She put it in! She put it in! And the Liberty win game two! What a finish! Unbelievable here at the Compaq Center! One of the most amazing finishes in the WNBA! And there will be a game three tomorrow afternoon. This crowd is absolutely stunned!" - Mike Breen, calling Weatherspoon's game winning shot.

From 2010, various Seattle Storm players visit the top of the Space Needle Tower.

Who is the one between Svetlana Abrosimova and Swin Cash? And is that Danielle Robinson on the right?

Stacey Dales-Schuman, probably thinking of her future career as a sports broadcaster, currently with the NFL Network. Cool

PostPosted: 03/17/16 7:07 pm    ::: WNBA Throwback Thursday - the college edition! Reply Reply with quote

Now that March Madness is upon us, I decided to do something different in RebKell's WNBA Throwback Thursday.

I'm going to share some current and former WNBA figures...when they were in college!

Here's the first: Chamique Holdsclaw with the Lady Vols!



Jennifer Azzi and Sonja Henning celebrate Stanford's first NCAA Championship in 1990...



Nancy Lieberman, Anne Donovan, and Inge Nissen at Old Dominion...




Speaking of Old Dominion, here's Ticha Penichiero getting past Stanford's Kate Starbird...



Cool

That's not Kelsey Bone. If I've done my clicking correctly, that's either Adrienne Pratcher or Tavarsha Scott-Williams.

Oops! My bad! You are correct, it IS Adrienne Pratcher. I'll correct my previous post.

Niele Ivey during her days at Notre Dame...




Univ. of Florida's Vanessa Hayden (#55)...




The Frazee triplets of Liberty University. Megan (#40) is the only one who later played in the WNBA...




Kristi Tolliver during Maryland's NCAA Championship Game against Duke, shortly after her last-second shot sent the game into overtime. Maryland later won the game. The dejected Duke player #43 looks like Alison Bales.

The WNBA created an infographic with a nice little recap of this history of the league in preparation for the start of the season.

I wonder what the cutoff is for being an All Time leader. I love Kim Perrot and am pleased to see her listed as the steals leader, but she only played 58 games. Can you really be an All Time leader when you played fewer league games than Sydney Carter?

I thought that was a bit odd when I first saw it because I knew she only played the first 2 years (which were the 2 shortest seasons), but I didn't really think about where that ranks in relation to other players.

Although not WNBA-related, here's a poster for a team and a league that folded even before its first game! From 1975, the Indianapolis Pink Panthers of the Women's Professional Basketball Association (WPBA), released a poster advertising itself. The woman on the left is supposed to be Jolene Ammons, who played with the All-American Redheads.

Ruth Riley and Yo Griffith for a ceremonial tip-off, with then-league president Donna Orender. Since the Connecticut Sun's logo can be seen on the floor, I assume that this was during an All-Star Game.

Quote:
A graceful small forward with a quick first step. Finishes with some flair, as the ball displays some magic off the glass before it goes in. Offensively poised. A main weakness at her age is playing in sync with older players who are more experienced than she is. She will have more elite camps to develop that area of her game. Her passing decisions in the halfcourt also need work.
