It will also pit two of the true legends of women’s basketball in USC head coach Dawn Staley and LA Tech head coach Teresa Weatherspoon.
Both firey point guards during their playing days in college, internationally and in the WNBA, Staley and Weatherspoon both have resumes full of championships, honors and records that prove their past playing days were no fluke. The similarities between the two women are almost eerie.
