Epilogue: Still Scoring Points—in The Classroom

View CoverRead All Articles

THIRTEEN YEARS after breaking UK's alltime scoring record, Still did have a baby with a former Kentucky basketball player. But it wasn't Charles Hurt whom Still married in 1995, it was Rob Lock ( Kentucky '88).

The two Wildcats, who divorced in May, met in Italy, where both played professionally—Still for 12 years and Lock for eight. The couple moved back to Lexington shortly before the birth of their son, Aaron, who at 11 is already on the verge of outgrowing his 6'1" mother.

In '96, just seven months after giving birth, Still was back on the court, trying out for the Columbus Quest of the fledgling American Basketball League. She was so unprepared for the opportunity that she had to stop and purchase a pair of sneakers on her drive to Ohio. But the 35-year-old Still, even with a new kid and new kicks, still had it.

Playing against much younger women, Old Lady Still showed unmatched drive. Averaging 10.5 points, she led the Quest to back-to-back ABL titles in 1997 and '98, earning series MVP honors both years.

After the ABL folded in 1998, Still joined the WNBA's Washington Mystics for one season, but she sustained an ACL injury that ultimately forced her to retire in 2000.

These days the 46-year-old Still is back in the classroom, pursuing a Ph.D. from the School of Physical Activity and Educational Services at Ohio State. "I'm an official Buckeye now," she says, "but there will always be a place in my heart for Kentucky—even when I'm Dr. Old Lady Still from OSU."
