Angel McCoughtry ● 6 - foot - 1 ● Forward

Bio:

The star of the Atlanta Dream makes her first Olympic appearance in 2012, but it is likely the first of many for this young talent. McCoughtry has led the Dream to the past two WNBA Finals and in doing so has emerged as one of the top scorers in the league.

Catchings called McCoughtry the hardest player in the league to guard because of her unpredictability. She has the ability to score with the outside jumper, but can slash and get to the basket with the best of them, finding unique ways to score all over the court. An emotional player, McCoughtry is also a solid perimeter defender, and consistently ranks among the league leaders in steals.
