Swin Cash

Swin Cash Biography

There can be no doubt that Swin Cash is living up to her name! A striking 6’2” beauty, Swintayla (the name means “astounding woman”) exploded onto the international sports scene in 2002, her rookie year in the WNBA. 
Selected as the Number Two overall pick in the 2002 WNBA draft by the Detroit Shock, it didn’t take long for Swin to rack up awards and accolades as she averaged 17.5 ppg in the 2003 playoffs. Playing a pivotal role during the Shock’s Championship Season, Swin earned All Star honors and a spot on the All-WNBA Second Team. As a member of the 2004 U.S. Olympic team, Swin helped lead to US Woman’s Team to a Gold Medal. In 2005, while battling a knee injury, Swin was again voted to the WNBA All Star team.  In 2006, the Shock won the WNBA title and in 2007 they played in the WNBA Finals.
Prior to her career in the WNBA, Swin was a 4-year member of the UCONN Woman’s Basketball Team, twice winning the NCAA National Title and leading the Huskies to a 136-9 record during her tenure in Storrs, CT. Swin graduated in 2002 with a degree in communications science.
But there’s more to Swin Cash than just points and rebounds. The McKeesport, Pennsylvania native, through Swin Cash Enterprises, has developed her own line of clothing and accessories and has earmarked the proceeds to support economic and commercial development in the area of youth enrichment.
In addition to her role on the court, Swin is also a studio analyst for the NBA on ESPN. 
Stylish, creative and fashionable herself, Swin sees the Swin Cash line as exemplifying success, genuineness and optimism – essential tools she believes kids need to “get in the game” of life. Her Cash For Kids charity assists youth agencies and schools in her hometown of Mckeesport to help kids develop important skills in and out of the classroom.
A natural leader since childhood, Swin was active in scouting, Boys and Girls Club, YMCA/YWCA and AAU. President of McKeesport High’s student council, she excelled in track, taking third in statewide hurdles competition. In addition, Swin is an international ambassador for UNICEF.
Recognized by the WNBA’s Community Assist Award for her extensive outreach efforts, Swin enjoys talking to young people, encouraging them to believe in themselves, to achieve their goals and to become leaders in their communities. This, she believes, leads to self-confidence, self-development and a positive direction in lif.
