Epiphanny Prince (born January 11, 1988 in New York City) is a Russian and American professional women's basketball player with the Chicago Sky and Galatasaray Medical Park in Turkey.[1] She is best known for scoring 113 points for Murry Bergtraum in a high school game in 2006, breaking a girls' national prep record previously held by Hall of Famer Cheryl Miller.[2] Participated in the 2006 Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and McDonald’s High School All-America Games.[3] In June, 2009, Prince announced plans to leave Rutgers after only three years to play professional basketball in Europe for a year. According to the New York Times, Prince was just 10 units from earning a degree in criminal justice and African-American studies and planned to complete her degree during the summer of 2009. Her announcement is not binding until she signs with an agent; in August, Prince signed with Wasserman Media Group.[4] In 2010 she was granted Russian citizenship. She wasn't on the roster during the 2011 European Championships, nor did she compete for Russia during the 2012 Olympics in London.[5]
