The Down Low
I apologize to the Vanderquigs that I have made them a joint profile like some boomer parents on facebook, but they are the only active WNBA players married to each other!! And they are on the same team!!! I spent more time than I'd like to admit on instagram trying to figure out if they were dating before they announced their marriage!!!! We stan!!!!
They are the definition of a power couple. Sloot and Allie make up the starting backcourt for the Chicago Sky and are both the best at what they do.
- Quig3y is the queen of the three point shot. She is a three time-winner of the three point contest, holding the best score of any player in the contest ever, WNBA or NBA. The video is below - she makes the ball look like it weighs nothing and her shot is effortless. Allie went on a journey to get to where she is. She was drafted late in the second round and bounced around between a number of teams before she landed in Chicago. She was considering retiring instead, but decided to take a final chance in her hometown. Luckily she did, because she immediately began making an impact. She was back-to-back Sixth Woman of the Year before making her way into the starting line up. And of course, she met her wife
- Sloot is the undisputed assist queen and holds almost every single assist record possible. Previously, she didn't hold the single-game assist record (then 16), but told me she would get it "one day" while in a signature line. And she did. With two assist in a row to you guessed it, Allie, from 3 (video below). In the 2020 season, she averaged 10.0 assists per game, shattering all previous records, which she mostly held herself.
