Little played for Carver High School in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where she was named a WBCA All-American. She participated in the 2003 WBCA High School All-America Game where she scored ten points. [1]

College[edit]

Known for her offensive skills and defensive game, Little and fellow All-American Ivory Latta led the North Carolina Tar Heels to two Final Four appearances in her four years at North Carolina. Little was voted the 2004 ACC Freshman of The Year and was named to the 2007 ACC All-Defensive Team. In her career at UNC, she has scored 1,773 points and averaged 12.8 points per game with 5.9 rebounds per game. Little was a McDonald's All-American in high school (2003).

Professional[edit]

Little was selected 17th overall by the San Antonio Silver Stars in the 2007 WNBA Draft. Dan Hughes, the Silver Stars' coach and general manager, was surprised she was still available: "No mock-draft scenario we put together had us able to get Camille in the second round." [1]

On April 9, 2008 Little was traded along with Chioma Nnamaka and the first round pick of the 2009 WNBA draft to the Atlanta Dream for Ann Wauters, Morenike Atunrase, and the second round pick of the 2009 WNBA draft. On June 22, 2008 Little was traded to the Seattle Storm for a second round pick of the 2009 WNBA Draft. Little helped the Seattle Storm win their second championship in 2010.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Little is a Christian. Little has spoken about her faith saying, "It’s not about the talent I have but about the gifts God has given me to use for His glory. Basketball accomplishments are great, but they can’t compare to my relationship with God."[3]

According to ESPN The Magazine, Little enjoys the television show SpongeBob SquarePants.
