In Brief

  • Three-time WNBA champion (Detroit 2003, 2006; Seattle 2010)
  • Olympic Gold Medal Winner (2004)
  • Two-time Second Team All-WNBA.
  • One of only six women to have won an NCAA Championship, a WNBA Championship and an Olympic medal

    This UConn product is one of just three players in WNBA history to start for both the East and West All-Star squads. The most recent championship and her MVP honors in the 2009 WNBA All-Star Game (where she scored a record 22 points) added to a remarkable resume and highlighted a dramatic comeback from back surgery. Taken by Detroit with the second overall pick in the 2002 Draft (immediately after Connecticut teammate Sue Bird), Cash entered the 2011 season with 3,580 career points (21st most in league history), 1,652 rebounds (17th), and 776 assists (24th).

    What They're Saying

    "Just a step behind Sue Bird – and a mini step at that – in overall prestige. Likewise, WNBA titles, but in Swin’s case with two different teams to go with an Olympic gold medal and NCAA titles with UConn."

    -- Mel Greenberg, Woman Hoops Guru

    "Swin Cash possessed the ability to be the best player on the court at times throughout career."

    -- Mechelle Voepel, ESPN

    "Swin Cash is greatness personified in every aspect of the game. Cash is always looking for ways to improve and never complacent. It’s not a coincidence that teams win championships when she is a member."

    -- Ben York, SLAM Magazine
