Dawn Staley

A three-time Olympic gold medalist, and the NCAA’s all-time steals leader, Dawn Staley was an undersized sparkplug that led the University of Virginia to three consecutive Final Fours. She was a two-time National Player of the Year and was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 1991 NCAA Final Four. Staley was one of the early pioneers in the mid-90s revolution of professional basketball for women, first playing in the ABL for the Richmond Rage and later in the WNBA for the Sting and Comets. Her first Olympics came in 1996, and she was honored by her countrymen in 2004 by carrying the flag into the Olympic Stadium for the Opening Ceremony. Staley was a five-time WNBA All-Star and a three-time Kodak All-America.
