Cynthia Cooper is a former professional basketball player and coach who made history in the WNBA. She was named the head coach of the Phoenix Mercury after leading the Houston Comets to four championships. As a player, Cooper earned numerous accolades, including being named to the WNBA All-Star Team every year the game was played and earning All-WNBA First Team honors in each of her four seasons in the league.
Cooper is considered the WNBA's all-time leading scorer and the Comet's all-time leader in several statistical categories, including points scored, scoring average, free throw percentage, assists, and minutes played. She also led the WNBA in scoring from 1997-1999 and was the first player in league history to reach several scoring milestones.
Before joining the WNBA, Cooper played professionally overseas and won eight scoring titles in 11 seasons. She was also a member of the U.S. Olympic Team, winning a gold medal in 1988 and a bronze medal in 1992. In college, she won two NCAA championships with the University of Southern California, where she also led the Trojans to three Final Four appearances in four years.

She is also the CEO of Cooper-Metoyer Communications and has a shoe line with NIKE called the Air C14.
Cooper has remained involved in the basketball world as a coach, leading USC to a conference championship and NCAA tournament appearance. She also founded the Mary Cobbs Building Dream Foundation, which raises funds for breast cancer research. Despite her many accomplishments, Cooper remains grounded and committed to giving back to her community..
