Dubbed Huskies' finest, Meghan Gardler is a 21-year-old, six-foot forward for the University of Connecticut. Throughout her college career, she has been known as a pesky defender, although she doesn't look like one judging by her sweet girl-next-door demeanor. The last we heard, Meghan is heading to Sweden to play pro ball. Baby come back?
The cutesy Taylor Lilley currently plays for the Phoenix Mercury, and despite her small stature (she's only 5'6"), don't look down on her though: she holds the single season record for three-point shooting when she was with the University of Oregon. Told you she's awesome.
Currently playing for the San Antonio Silver Stars, the 33-year-old Becky Hammon is one of the more popular and most established players in the WNBA, and it's not hard to see why. Doesn't she strike a resemblance to 'Heroes' cutie Hayden Panettiere?
Speaking of the more popular players in the WNBA, Los Angeles Sparks' Candace Parker has long been regarded as one of them. The 24-year-old is considered one of the league's hottest players, and she is better known for her good looks. But before you judge her, the girl can ball too: she was the first woman to dunk in an NCAA tournament game and only the second player to dunk in a WNBA game.
Do not be fooled by her looks, Elina Babkina is a really talented baller: at only the age of 16, she was offered a contract to play for Russian Superleague team UMMC Ekaterinburg. Elina now plays for Polish side Lotos VBW Clima Gdynia and is the back-up point guard for the Latvia women's national basketball team. No matter what, she is a starter in our books.
Kathleen Nash might look like a model with her blonde hair and pretty grey eyes, but the 6'2" hottie is only the second player in University of Texas history to have 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 150 three pointers in her career - and she is only a junior!
Isn't Leilani Mitchell pretty? The 25-year-old Leilani, who is currently playing for the New York Liberty in the WNBA, led the league in 3-point percentage while averaging 9.3 points and 3.8 assists per game en route to winning the 2010 WNBA Most Improved Player Award. She is so cute, we wanna keep her in our back pocket, but she would probably kick our ass in basketball.
Claudia Cecilia Lampe Porras
If you thought, "Hey, this Claudia chick looks like a model!", well - she is one! Claudia used to play college ball with the University of Texas El Paso and represented Bolivia in the South America Championships, averaging 18 points and 14 rebounds a game. After not attracting any offers to play overseas, Claudia quit basketball and went straight into modeling. Not that we mind, though.
Tamara Abalde Diaz
A 6'2" guard from the land of many beautiful people, Tamara Abalde Diaz has been named one of the world's hottest basketball players ever. And not only that, her game on the basketball court speaks volume: Tamara helped Spain to a fourth place finish at the 2003 World Championships in Bratislava, Slovakia, where she averaged 13.4 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. This senorita is one hot baller!
Australian Lauren Jackson is arguably women's basketball's most distinguishable star, not to mention one of the world's best. Currently playing for the Seattle Storm, the 6'5" center is a three-time WNBA Most Valuable Player and holds the record for most point scored in a WNBA game with 47. Lauren has the looks to go with her talents as well: she once posed nude in an Australian magazine and has also appeared in the 2005 edition of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
