    Alabama Legend: Dominique Canty

     

    Dominique Canty remains one of the most decorated players in Alabama women’s basketball history and still stands as its all-time leading scorer, accumulating 2,294 points throughout her four-year career.
     
    Canty was the first freshman to be named Southeastern Conference Tournament MVP in 1996 and earned all-conference accolades each of her four seasons.  She was also recognized nationally, being named a two-time U.S. Basketball Writers Association First Team All-American amongst several other All-America honors in the late 90s.
     
    Canty started in 113 of the 127 games she played in at The Capstone and averaged over 18 points and seven rebounds for her career.
     
    She was selected 29th overall by the Detroit Shock in the 1999 WNBA Draft and was the runner-up for the league’s Rookie of the Year honors.  She spent 14 seasons in the league, making stops at Detroit, Houston, Chicago and Washington.
