Love Diana ... her high school team did not win a state championship, Cynthia's did. If you're going to point to accomplishments based on who's around you, then let's go back to high school, where one player can and often does carry a team by herself. Chino never even got close to a state title ...

Stats, though controversial, are somewhat unbiased.

Top four-year win share total: Cooper 29.1, DT 22.6

Eff Shooting %: Cooper 52.7, DT 52

True Shooting %: Cooper 61, DT 58.4

Not necessarily definitive, but definitely make a case for Cooper.


OTOH, in college Cooper was never the best player on her team, and often not considered the second best.


Note that the best player on that team was Cheryl Miller, so being No. 2 isn't exactly an insult.

Also on the team were the McGee twins, who dominated the ball inside, so there wasn't a lot of room for Cooper to shine. Pam McGee went on to have a solid pro career, by the way.

What's interesting is that there appear to be no on-line stats for Cooper at USC.

In any event, to claim that a player should be downgraded because she wasn't as good as Cheryl Miller seems a little harsh.
