On the Road With Candice Dupree

As a former military brat, the Chicago Sky's Candice Dupree got to do her fair share of traveling before her basketball career even began. Her basketball experiences since have caused her to rack up even more miles and included four years with Temple, playing for USA Basketball, a season overseas and two years with the Sky.

We talked with Dupree about the many stops she has made on the way to WNBA stardom.
