ANHATTAN, Kan. – Former Kansas State guard/forward Claire Coggins has earned a spot on the 2007 Chicago Sky roster. She becomes the sixth Wildcat to play in the WNBA.
Coggins made her professional debut against Los Angeles Sparks on May 22
and scored eight points in seven minutes. She went 3-for-6 from the
floor including 2-for-5 from the three-point range.
Coggins was named Second Team All-Big 12 Conference for the second
straight season this year. She averaged 11.9 points and 3.4 rebounds
in 32.5 minutes per game while leading the team in steals (56). She
posted a team-best 13.7 points per game against Big 12 foes.
A preseason All-Big 12 honorable mention selection, Coggins became the
32nd player in Kansas State women’s basketball history to top 1,000
career points as she scored 20 points in the Wildcats’ 48-45 victory
over No. 17 Texas A&M on Jan. 6.
Coggins, the 2006 postseason WNIT most valuable player, helped the
Wildcats capture the program’s first-ever postseason championship in
front of a sold-out crowd of 13,340 at Bramlage Coliseum against
Marquette. She also scored a K-State postseason single-season record
31 points against Idaho State in the first round of the 2006 Postseason
