Chicago Sky Head Coach and General Manager Pokey Chatman announced that the team has signed guard Epiphanny Prince to a multi-year contract extension. Per team policy, terms of the contract are not disclosed.

“I have been excited to play for the Chicago Sky since the day I was drafted and couldn’t think of a better place to continue my career. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity that Pokey and Michael Alter have given me. Having such a great organization, coaching staff and teammates makes me eager to get this season started. I look forward to playing in front of great fans and bringing this city a championship,” said Prince.

Prince was the Sky’s fourth overall pick in the 2010 WNBA Draft. As a rookie, she played in all 34 games and was the Sky’s third best scorer, averaging 9.8 points per game. She also offered 2.7 assists and 1.6 steals per game.

Prince has steadily improved during her time at the Sky. In 2012, after establishing herself as a WNBA All-Star, Prince became the first WNBA player since 1997 to score 30 points in three straight games. She led the team in scoring, averaging 18.1 points per game. Prince also shot an impressive 90 percent from the free throw line and 44 percent from the field.

"In a relatively short professional career, Piph has established herself as a prolific scorer, while continuing to improve on the defensive end of the floor. We feel she's the future of the league and wanted to make sure she's in a Sky uniform for its duration,” said Chatman.

Prince will miss seven Sky regular season games between June 4 and June 30 to compete in the EuroBasket Women 2013 Championships in fulfillment of her contract obligation to the Russian national team.
