Women’s College Basketball Stats Expanded Back to 2001-02

Posted by Jonah Gardner on March 13, 2023

Exciting news, we've just added even more women's stats to College Basketball Reference!

Just a few weeks ago, we expanded College Basketball Reference to include women's stats for the first time, covering seasons back to 2009-10. Today, we're excited to announce that we've added eight more seasons worth of stats, taking our coverage back to 2001-02.

This update means that we have at least partial college stats for some of the greatest players in history, including Diana Taurasi, Candace Parker, Lindsay Whalen, and Sylvia Fowles. We've also added more seasons for players like Maya Moore and Tina Charles, whose careers spanned years that are included in both updates.

For more information on the full scope of this update and the work that went into it, please check out our original post. To stay up to date on our next big project, Stathead College Basketball, sign up for email updates.

    Wonderful work! This Notre Dame fan might anticipate things going back at least just one season prior. ;-) Please forgive me, I'm missing what the little orange icon means next to players' names when listed in their seasonal team rosters -- for instance, the 2002-03 Notre Dame roster has a couple, and the 2001-02 Connecticut roster has a whole slew. Each is obviously a "star" player but I wondered specifically what the orange icon signified. Thanks to the entire sports-reference family -- invaluable stuff!

    Thanks, Mark! The icon is a WNBA logo indicating if the player played in the WNBA

    Ah, feeling a little sheepish that I didn't recognize it and/or figure it out. O:-) Thanks just for responding!
