Getting a chance to defend Olympic gold, Angel McCoughtry will represent Team USA this summer in Brazil. McCoughtry played for the University of Louisville Women’s Basketball team from 2005 – 2009, where she proved to be a dominant point scorer for the Cardinals. The final two seasons of McCoughtry’s college career were spent under current head coach Jeff Walz.
