The WNBA is currently in the midst of their 2020 season in a campus environment at IMG Academy due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Cooper, who spent her collegiate career with stints at Tennessee, South Carolina, and Baylor, was the 18th overall pick in the 2020 WNBA Draft, selected by the Phoenix Mercury, but ultimately signed by the Sparks.
In her short professional career, Cooper has averaged 7.3 points per game over three appearances. The Los Angeles Sparks roster is highlighted by two former Most Valuable Players in Candace Parker and Nneka Ogwumike, entering into Wednesday’s contest with the Fever with a record of 2-2.
