Epiphanny Prince (born January 11, 1988) is a Russian and American professional women's basketball player with the New York Liberty and Dynamo Kursk of Russia as well as the Russia women's national basketball team.[1] [2] 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.[3] Participated in the 2006 Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and McDonald’s High School All-America Games.[4] 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.[5] 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.[6] Prince played as a point guard for the Russian national team in the European Championships of 2013, where the team finished in 13th place.[7] On February 16, 2015, the Chicago Sky traded Prince to the New York Liberty for Cappie Pondexter.[8]
