On the Beat With Allie Quigley of the Chicago Sky-7/12/17

We were back "On the Beat" with the WNBA Chicago Sky as they beat the Dallas Wings 90-84, to raise their record to 5-12 for the season.  It was also their second consecutive victory.
Guard Allie Quigley led all scorers with 22 points, shooting 7-12 on field goal attempts and 5-9 from 3 point land.  She was also 3-4 from the free throw line and had 6 assists and 1 rebound.
A native of Joliet, IL, Quigley starred at DePaul University before being selected by the Seattle Storm in the second round (22nd overall) in the 2008 WNBA Draft.  The Storm released her prior to the season, but the Phoenix Mercury quickly signed her.  
Quigley spent 2 seasons with the Mercury, then joined the Indiana Fever.  In 2011, she found her way back to the Storm, where she played for 1 season.  Quigley signed with the Sky in 2013 and has played here ever since.
She also played overseas during that span.  She won the Turkish Super Cup in 2015 and the Turkish League in 2016.  She also won the Turkish Cup in 2016 and was the MVP of the Turkish Cup.
This season, she has played in 14 games, averaging 16.4 points while playing over 31 minutes of action.  She also adds 3 rebounds and 3 assists per game, while shooting over 45% from 3 point territory.
In Wednesday's game, she shot 5-9 from the 3 point land, which was a major part of the Sky's offense.  She led all scorers with 22 points.
In the post-game media session, Quigley was asked about her three point shooting now and during her time at DePaul.  She also talked a bit about teammate Keisha Hampton.  Below is the Quigley portion of the post-game media session.  
It's very cool to see a local lady do well with the Sky.  Quigley has worked hard to get to this point and she deserves all of the success she has and the praise she gets.
Thank you to the Chicago Sky for their hospitality.  I appreciate Quigley's time and consideration for this media session.  I encourage everyone to check out the Sky in action.  Head over to for more info, incuding their remaining schedule.
