In addition, she played three more times in the WNBA All-Star game in 2019, 2021, and 2022.

Furthermore, she became the 2021 WNBA champion defeating Brittney Griner‘s Phoenix Mercury.

Moreover, Courtney was named two times to the All-WNBA first team and three times to the All-WNBA second team.

Relationship & Marriage

The former Chicago Sky teammates’ journey begins with the hoops. At the end of the 2012–13 season, Quigley’s team faced off with Vandersloot’s team in a five-game series of the Slovakian Championship.

As Kosice won the series, both were bound to compete for playing time at Chicago Sky. They got to know each other as they were on the same flight back to the U.S.

The couple decided to begin dating in late September after the couple acknowledged their mutual feelings.

They even lived together in Istanbul for three Euroleague seasons playing for different Turkish teams.

The Chicago Sky starters would be the first to high-five each other after a big basket and bring out the best in each other. 

After keeping their relationship out of the spotlight for over five years, the pair married on December 27, 2018.

The “VanderQuigs” exchanged the vows in Seattle, north of Vandersloot’s hometown of Kent.

WNBA players Gabby Williams, Diamond DeShields, and Carolyn Swords were also present at the wedding.

The team reached the second round of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball in 2005 and the sweet sixteen in 2006 during her four years as a Blue Demon.

The Seattle Storm drafted Quigley in the second round as the 22nd overall pick in the 2008 WNBA draft.

After the Storm cut her before the season started, she signed as a free agent with the Phoenix Mercury on May 11, 2008.

Quigley played for other teams like the San Antonio Stars and Indiana Fever in the 2010 season before eventually signing with the Seattle Storm in 2011.

She didn’t play in the WNBA for the 2012 season and wondered whether her career in the WNBA was over.

However, in March 2013, the Chicago Sky signed Quigley, which changed the course of her career.

The point guard then went on to win the WNBA championship in 2021 and the WNBA 3-point competition four times.

Furthermore, Quigley has also been playing in other European leagues, becoming the Cup winner with Pécs 2010 and Fenerbahçe.

In addition, she also played for Galatasaray, Famila Schiao, and UMMC Ekaterinburg throughout her career.
