Quigley had her moments on the court, chipping in on average 11.4 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists while shooting 42.8% from the floor and 35.5% from the arc during the 2022 season. She also became the first player in professional basketball, both men and women, to win more than three 3-point contests in a career, winning her fourth this season.
Since coming over to Chicago in 2013, Quigley became the franchise leader in points scored (3,723), field goals made (1,386) and three pointers made (504) while ranking 2nd in franchise history in 3-point percentage (39.5%), assists (683) and games played (313).
The Chicagoland native has racked up the awards while back home as a 3-time WNBA All-Star, 2-time WNBA Sixth Woman of the Year and a WNBA Champion over her 9 years with the Sky.
Quigley is the final member of the 2021 Championship to leave Chicago. Her wife and teammate Courtney Vandersloot joined the New York Liberty, Candace Parker is part of the Las Vegas Aces and Azurá Stevens is now a Los Angeles Spark.
