Cindy Brogdon, a 2002 inductee into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, starred at Tennessee from 1977-79, averaging 20.8 points and 6.0 rebounds per contest while earning Kodak All-America honors in her two seasons with the Lady Vols. Her career scoring average still ranks No. 2 in school history, and her career free throw percentage of .839 remains fourth. Brogdon, a U.S. Olympic gold medalist in 1976, averaged 21.7 points and 7.6 rebounds in 1977-78, as UT finished 27-4 and was No. 1 in the final AP Top 20. The following year, prior to embarking on a professional career in the WBL with St. Louis, she posted 20.1 points and 4.7 rebounds per contest as Tennessee went 30-9 and placed third at the AIAW National Championships. Those season scoring averages still rank as the third and ninth best in Lady Vol history, and her 20-rebound effort vs. Kentucky in 1978 makes her one of only six players in program history to grab that many rebounds in a game.
