Ticha Penicheiro is a former WNBA player, playing 14 seasons with three different teams. Originally from Portugal, Penicheiro came to the United States to play college basketball for Old Dominion University. During her four years at Old Dominion, she was a two time All-American, and helped the team reach the NCAA Championship game in 1997. After graduating, Penicheiro was drafted second overall by the Sacramento Monarchs in the 1998 WNBA draft, where she would finish third in rookie of the year voting. She would be voted to her first of four All-Star games in 1999, winning her only WNBA championship in 2005. Ten years after her debut, Penicheiro signed with the Los Angeles Sparks in 2010. Two seasons later, Penicheiro signed with the Chicago Sky, but was forced to retire after the season due to lasting injuries. Penicheiro would retire after a career in which she was considered one of the greatest players of all time, and is the record holder for most career assists and most steals in a single game. She now works as a sports agent, and finally became a United States Citizen in 2013.
