At Troy, Thompson was a first team All-American in 1997.  She sits fifth all-time in the Trojan record books in scoring and rebounding.

After leaving USC, she became the first player ever drafted into the WNBA.  In her 15 years in the league, Thompson has made the all-star team nine times and won four consecutive titles with the Houston Comets. 

The WNBA legend is the only player to compete in every season of the league's history.  She is the all-time leader in points and games played.

Teaming with fellow Trojan Lisa Leslie, Thompson has brought home gold twice from the Olympics in 2004 and 2008.
