UNCASVILLE – During Swin Cash’s tenure with the UConn women’s basketball team, each of the Huskies won four regular season titles and championships in the Big East, advanced to three NCAA Final Fours, won two national championships, and amassed a record 136-9.
In their first season at All-America, UConn didn’t fall behind in the second half of a game – the only Huskies in program history to do so – en route to a perfect 39-0 campaign that ended with Cash taking the title of Quarterback Player of the Year.
A week later, she was taken second overall by the Detroit Shock in the 2002 WNBA Draft. Her first game was on May 30. On June 28, after losing overtime to the Miami Souls, the Shock were still looking for their first win.
