Career Highlights: Despite having limited national team experience, McCoughtry has proven to be a major factor when playing for her country.
She came off the bench at the 2010 world championships and was second on the gold-medal winning U.S. team with 11.3 points
per game while finishing second among all players in the tournament with 24 steals. McCoughtry was Team USA's top scorer in
her only other two events on the international stage - the 2009 Ekaterinburg International Invitational and the 2007 Pan American
Games. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 draft finished just behind Olympic teammate Diana Taurasi for the 2011 WNBA scoring
title at 21.6 points per game, and was third the previous season (21.1). In both years, McCoughtry led Atlanta to the WNBA
finals - she averaged 31.0 points in last season's championship series. She's helped the Dream reach the playoffs in all three
of her seasons after they were a league-worst 4-30 in their inaugural 2008 campaign. The Baltimore native even won a Turkish
League championship after the 2011 WNBA season, scoring 34 points for Fenerbache in the title-clinching game. The all-time
leading scorer and rebounder in University of Louisville history, McCoughtry has been named to two straight WNBA all-defensive
first teams and has been among the league leaders in steals in every season as a pro.
