Honoring one of the greatest women’s basketball players of all time, the WUBA is excited to announce that the Player of the Year Award will be renamed to the “Cynthia Cooper Award”.

The legendary Cynthia Cooper was a 4x Finals MVP and WNBA Champion during her career. She was later inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009 for her achievements.

“Super Coop was an amazing competitor who brought so much to the game. Her long list of accolades speaks to the kind of woman she is and the WUBA is proud to rename this award in honor of her,” commented WUBA President Christy Luxe. “She is the kind of mentor we want to showcase to future generations of female athletes.”
