NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Courtney Paris is returning to Oklahoma as an assistant coach after a 10-year WNBA playing career.
The school made the announcement in a news release on Wednesday.
Paris was the 2007 AP National Player of the Year as a sophomore and was selected Big 12 Player of the Year three times. She left Oklahoma with 20 NCAA Division I records. One of her most notable feats was an NCAA-record 112 consecutive double-doubles.
Paris remains OU’s all-time leader in points (2,729) and rebounds (2,034) and became the first NCAA player – regardless of gender or division – to accumulate 2,500 career points and 2,000 career rebounds. She finished her college career with averages of 19.9 points, 14.8 rebounds and 3.3 blocks per game. She was Big 12 Freshman of the Year, in 2006, the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year twice, and was the 2009 Senior CLASS Award winner.
