Former UConn star Swin Cash announces her retirement

Swin Cash, a key member of UConn's 2000 and 2002 national championship teams and a member of the Huskies of Honor, announced her decision to retire from the WNBA at season's end in a Player's Tribune post.

"I have 27 regular season games left," Cash wrote. "I’ll be taking in every moment as I look to the future, whatever it may hold. I understand there’s a new life waiting for me after that last whistle."

Cash was taken with the second overall pick in the historic 2002 WNBA Draft when UConn players went with four of the top six selections.

She is currently 14th in WNBA history in regular-season scoring with 4,978 points with former UConn teammates Diana Taurasi and Sue Bird two of those ranking ahead of her. She is currently 10th in career rebounding with 2,429. She is 15 behind Yolanda Griffith and 18 behind Lauren Jackson. She ranks 19th in scoring and 11th in rebounding in WNBA playoff history.

Cash was a member of WNBA championship teams in Detroit in 2003 and 2006 and won another title with Seattle in 2010. She also had stints in Chicago, Atlanta and is in her third season with the New York Liberty. She is averaging 5.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in four games this season.
