Sunday Cardinal Couple -- Whatever happened to ??
SUNDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
- Whatever happened to...
We had an inquiry a couple of weeks ago on whatever happened to a UofL WBB player that left the program. We decided to revive the "Whatever Happened To?" segment we used to do here. Here ya go with our first installment:
POLLY HARRINGTON 5'11" WING
Harrington was a part of the 2010 incoming class after a year of junior college. Her 2010-11 stats as a Card were 16 games played, 5.1 minutes per game, 1.8 ppg. She decided to transfer in April of 2011...looking for more playing time...and she found it at South Dakota. She started every game in her two years there and was the Summit League Conference Tournament MVP as a senior in 2014. SD lost the Stanford in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
Harrington averaged 12.4 ppg and 5.6 rebounds her senior season.
The Summit League has an interesting makeup...
Harrington also received a fair share of national attention when her fiancee proposed to her during the season...
South Dakota senior wing Polly Harrington will remember her final game at the Dakota Dome for the rest of her life, and it has nothing to do with the 16 points she scored in USD's 99-88 loss to rival SD State.
With the team apparently honoring her on the court after the game, Harrington's boyfriend snuck up behind her, dropped to a knee and proposed to her. A stunned Harrington said "Yes!" to the delight of the crowd and her teammates.
Is there a former WBB Card you'd like an update on? Just let us know either by e-mail or drop a request in the comments section. We'll research your request for our next "Whatever Happened To?"
