Houston Comets. 3-Peat. This was my team and my 3 growing up!! My basketball idols! Even though I grew up in the Jordan Era, all remember was the Htown 3. Swoopes, Cooper & Thompson (oh yea that lipstick!). Hey I’m a Texan so it’s to be expected.
I look forward to see how Swoopes does her first go round as a head coach. I had the opportunity of meeting Cynthia Cooper-Dyke (name change since marriage) and she was awesome. Best of luck to both coaches! Thompson got next???
Sheryl Swoopes, one of the top players in women’s basketball history, is the new coach at Loyola of Chicago. A standout at Texas Tech in the early 1990s and the first three-time most valuable player in the WNBA, Swoopes will try to invigorate a struggling program.
Cynthia Cooper-Dyke is returning to her alma mater, as USC announced the Hall-of-Famer will be the school’s next women’s head basketball coach.
Cooper-Dyke had a stellar playing career as her resume lists two NCAA titles at USC, four WNBA championships and an Olympic gold medal.
She has been a collegiate head coach for eight years, leading Texas Southern to a Southwestern Athletic Conference regular season championship last season. Before that, Cooper-Dyke spent five years at Prairie View A&M (2006-10) and two at UNC Wilmington (2011-12) and has a career record of 150-106.
So who do you think will have the best record their first season??
