New York, NY ~ September 7, 2016 ~ The stars were out to pay tribute to one of the most influential women in WNBA history as WNBA President Lisa Borders, Liberty President Isiah Thomas, WNBA All-Time leading scorer Tina Thompson, Sue Bird, Tina Charles, and Bill Laimbeer all spoke about Cash’s career before Cash took the stage.
The crowd at Madison Square Garden was able to hear from Cash’s closest friends and biggest influences about what she has meant to the game of basketball and off the court. A group from her Cash for Kids Charity from her hometown of McKeesport, Pa., was in attendance at The Garden as well.
Cash thanked everyone that has had an influence on her from her mother, to her high school coach, teammates, and everyone she has encountered through nearly two decades on the hardwood in college and the pro ranks.
Cash ranks in the top-15 in WNBA history in points, rebounds, assists, and games played, and is a two-time NCAA Champion, three-time WNBA Champion, and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist. She is one of just two players in WNBA history to amass 5,000 points, 2,000 rebounds and 1,000 assists, the other being Tamika Catchings.
