Becky Hammon      

Former Professional Basketball Player & Current Head Coach of the Las Vegas Aces; First Woman To Act As Head Coach Of An NBA Team

Rebecca "Becky" Lynn Hammon is seven-time WNBA All-Star who retired from the San Antonio Stars at age 37 and was the first full-time female assistant coach in NBA history. In 2020, Hammon made history again, becoming the first woman to act as an NBA head coach in a regular season game. She took over coaching duties for the Spurs after Gregg Popovich was ejected from a game against the Los Angeles Lakers. She was named the Head Coach of the Las Vegas Aces in 2021, after her 8th season with the Spurs as an Assistant Coach. Hammon became a Russian citizen in 2008 and represented the Russian national team in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.

In her college career, Hammon broke all of the Rams records at Colorado State University, earning All-American recognition, winning the Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award as the best senior player under 5-foot-8, and passing 11-year NBA veteran Keith Van Horn as the leading scorer—male or female—in Western Athletic Conference history.
