Sunday Cardinal Couple -- Whatever happened to ??


- 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:


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...

Summit Conference Standings

North Dakota State2-126-24
Western Illinoishe 6-814-16
South Dakota7-719-13
South Dakota State13-122-9

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?"


  1. Apparently the first one did not go through.. I was interested in knowing about Dez Bird. She left under some un announce situation and I was worried about her. However I know she played in a charity ??? game after a regular women's game in YUM. I could not stay for it.

    1. It took Dez longer than expected to come back from the knee and hip injuries she suffered at the end of her sophomore season...but she has played in the last two alumni games UofL has put on.

      Same old Dez...barking orders, running the point and going into the lane way too often...LOL
