For some reason people typically tend to only pay attention to who the media is talking about when it comes to women’s basketball.
For example, Britney Griner, Skylar Diggins, Candace Parker and Maya Moore are probably most talked about in women’s basketball when it comes to the media and general fans and for good reason. They are all playing at a high level right now and helping their teams to grow and get better. However there is more to women’s basketball besides them.
They are all amazing players, but they aren’t the only amazing players. Need I mention Cappie Pondexter, Candace Dupree, Lindsey Harding, Candace Wiggins, Sylvia Fowles, Sophia Young and that’s just to name a few.
