Swin Cash, Vice President of Basketball Operations and Team Development for the New Orleans Pelicans, was recently selected to the 2020 Class of the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame! Cash graduated from McKeesport High, the same school that Alpine’s owners, Jill and Jan – and a number of other employees – attended. After starring on McKeesport’s basketball team, Cash went on to play a successful collegiate career followed by 15 seasons in the WNBA.
During her collegiate career, Cash helped lead the University of Connecticut women’s basketball team to national titles in 2000 and 2002. She was then selected in the WNBA draft to play for the Detroit Shock, leading them to their first ever WMBA title. Cash continued on to play for multiple teams, winning numerous championships and securing two Olympic gold medals in 2004 and 2012.
Alpine, along with the entire McKeesport community, are so proud of her achievements. Congratulations Swin Cash!
