The Chicago Sky selected Courtney Vandersloot from Gonzaga University with the third overall pick in the 2011 WNBA Draft.
Vandersloot, a 5-8 point guard from Gonzaga, was the first ever Division I player — man or woman — to notch more than 2000 points and 1000 assists in a career.
She was named three-time All-West Coast Conference, two-time West Coast Conference Player of the Year, and two-time West Coast Conference Tournament Most Valuable Player.
In 2011, Vandersloot’s extraordinary shooting and remarkable court sense guided Gonzaga to a 31-4 record.

In the postseason, Vandersloot averaged a tournament-high 30.7 points per game.
In her senior season, Vandersloot averaged 18.6 points, 10.2 assists, and 3.4 rebounds per game.
