Swin Cash ● 6 - foot - 1 ● Forward

Bio:
One of the veterans on this team, Cash is an experienced player that will come off the bench for the National Team. Her versatility, in that she can score, rebound and defend will allow her to contribute in many facets of the game against any opponent. Above all, Cash is a proven winner. The 6-foot-1 forward has won three WNBA titles, most of any player on the team, and she has a Gold Medal from the 2004 Olympics. She is looking for her second Gold Medal in this her second Olympics with the U.S. National Team.

In her tenth WNBA season, the 32 year-old Cash has displayed continued fitness, averaging over 30 minutes a game again this year. Her scoring is down a bit – she’s putting up 9.8 points per night, down from her career average of 12.7 – but she will not be asked to carry the scoring load for this team. In exhibitions, however, Cash was efficient, averaging 6.6 points on 12-for-22 shooting (54.5 percent, third on the team) in a little over 13 minutes per contest. A four-time All-Star and named to the 2011 WNBA All-Defensive Team, Cash is a complete player that will undoubtedly play quality minutes in London.
