Vandersloot and Barefoot: The only two of their kind

Courtney Vandersloot.

Hope you got a chance to enjoy Courtney Vandersloot's amazing night on Monday when she led her No. 11 Gonzaga team to an upset victory over No. 3 UCLA in the NCAA Tournament second round. Vandersloot's 24 points and 17 assists made it a milestone night, as the senior became the first player in Division I history to achieve 2,000 points and 1,000 assists.

We highlight this as a way to acknowledge Virginia's own Karen Barefoot. The former point guard for Division III Christopher Newport is the only other player to achieve that distinction during her brilliant career from 1991-94.

Here's a LadySwish shoutout to the Newport News native and former Old Dominion assistant, now the head coach at Elon.
