A two-time Kokak All-American and the 2002 SEC Player of the Year, the 6-foot-6 Anderson scored a school-record 2,604 points during her career at Vanderbilt (2000-03). In February, the Commodores retired Anderson's jersey at halftime of the Vanderbilt-Tennessee game before a sellout crowd of 14,163. Anderson was the No. 2 pick in the 2003 WNBA draft , but her pro career was hampered by injuries, including a broken patella, a torn Achilles tendon and an ACL tear.
Anderson recently completed her first season as an assistant coach with Palm Beach Atlantic University, a Division II team. The team's head coach is 26-year-old Clarisse Garcia, who finished her playing career at Villanova in 2007.
Off the court, Anderson has remained visible in a variety of roles, including color commentary and a guest stint on the MTV series "Made." She projects confidence and an infectious personality, and is clearly proud of being a 6-foot-6 woman. Assistant coaches are often seen but not heard from. But we have a feeling Tech fans will be getting to know a lot more about Chantelle Anderson.
