    Hi everyone!

    new member here! I was watching some older games of Stacy and it’s crazy how good she was especially being so undersized!

    I also read and article saying her hands are so big she could palm a medicine ball! Lol!

    I don’t think that’s true but could anyone verify that!?

    I would not dismiss the claim. When Stacy was playing at Texas, there was a picture of her hands next to Lisa Leslie’s hands. Stacy’s hands were comparatively huge.

    She also had very long arms and was solid.

    Really? Does anyone have pictures where you can tell how huge her hands are?

    We socialized with a family who were close to Stacy and we had a chance to meet her several times at dinners. Terrific person, great player, so much heart for the sport. Those were the years when athletes graduating from UT had a hard time finding employment with the athlete's version of the kinesiology degree. Obviously, that is part of what is behind the Leverage program introduced this year.

    I first saw Stephens at the Duncanville Sandra Meadows Tournament playing for I think Winnsboro HS. She was quite a force with her long arms and hands. Just a dominating player. I believe they won state that year. Perhaps more. Well deserved. She was a dominant center at Texas even though significantly undersized in terms of height.
