PHOENIX — At a downtown tattoo parlor, Brittney Griner is cautiously picking out her next choice of body ink."I'm getting this next one on my neck," Griner says, showing off a wide array of current tattoos decorating her upper body.
Taurasi has won three WNBA championships (2007, 2009, 2014), WNBA Most Valuable Player Award (2009), two WNBA Finals MVP Awards (2009, 2014), four Olympic gold medals, (2004, 2008, 2012, 2016), five scoring titles (2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011), and the WNBA Rookie of the Year Award (2004).
In addition to the national recognition she received during her time at UConn, Taurasi was held in legendary status by many Connecticut fans.
For example, state senator Thomas Gaffey nominated her to join Prudence Crandall as the state's heroine.
Taking the court primarily at point guard and shooting guard, she led the team to three consecutive NCAA championships.
Leading up to the final championship, her coach, Geno Auriemma, would declare his likelihood of winning with the claim, "We have Diana, and you don't." Taurasi also received many personal accolades at UConn including the 20 Naismith College Player of the Year awards, the 2003 Wade Trophy, and the 2003 Associated Press Player of the Year award.
