Basketball legend Sheryl Swoopes ties the knot

It has been a busy couple of months for former WNBA star Sheryl Swoopes.

In June, Swoopes was inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Tennessee (after making the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in September). Over the weekend, the former NCAA champ (Texas Tech), four-time WNBA champ (Houston Comets) and three-time Olympic gold medalist married her longtime fiancé, Chris Unclesho.

Swoopes posted a photo from the nuptials on her Facebook page.


Swoopes had married her high school sweetheart in 1995 and was divorced in 1999. She has a son from that marriage. Her six-year relationship with former Comets assistant coach Alisa Scott ended in 2011, the same year she became engaged to Unclesho.
