As Stanford’s first All American woman basketball player, Jennifer Azzi led the Cardinal to the school’s first NCAA Women’s Championship in 1990 and received the coveted Naismith Trophy as the nation’s top collegiate woman player that year. She was also the Most Valuable Player of the women’s Final Four. A speedy, sharp-shooting guard, she finished her collegiate career as Stanford’s all-time leader in steals and assists and as the second leading scorer. She was also durable, starting in 122 of the 124 games played in her four years there. After graduation, she starred on the 1996 Gold Medal women’s team in the Olympic Games at Atlanta and played professionally both in Europe and with the WNBA in the United States.
Inducted into the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame in 2007.
