April 25, 2002
TEMPE, Ariz. - Senior guard Amanda Levens has been picked up as a free agent by the Charlotte Sting of the WNBA.
Levens, a two-time first-team All-Pac-10 honors in her two seasons in Tempe, led ASU in two of its most successful seasons in school history. An honorable-mention Associated Press All-American, she helped ASU to a share of its first ever Pac-10 Championship in 2001 and the inaugural Pac-10 Tournament Championship in 2002. The Sun Devils also turned in the school's first back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances and back-to-back 20-win seasons in 19 years.
Levens, a 5-9 guard from Belvidere, Ill., transferred to Tempe after helping Old Dominion University to a pair of NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearances. At Arizona State, she led the team in scoring in each of her two seasons and became just the third Sun Devil in school history to score 1,000 points in just two seasons. Levens finished her career as the second-best three-point shooter in school history, knocking down 117 three-pointers in just two years. She holds the top two single-season three-point marks in school history and also set the ASU single-season records for free throws and free throws made. In 2002, she led the team in scoring (16.7 ppg), three-pointers made (57), free throw shooting (77.3 percent) and assists (4.4 apg).
Training camps for the 16 WNBA teams begin on Monday, April 29.
