Sheri Sam's four-year Vanderbilt career began and ended with postseason success - she was a freshman when the Commodores reached the Final Four in 1993 and a senior on the 1996 team that reached the Elite Eight. But in between those runs, Sam grew from a spot contributor off the bench into one of the nation's premier frontcourt players. She led the team in points, rebounds and steals in her final two seasons, and her points per game and field goal percentage numbers remain among the ten highest career totals in program history to this day. After averaging 20.4 points per game as a senior in 1996, Sam became the third player in school history to be named a Kodak All-American and remains one of only four Vanderbilt players to be honored. She has gone on to enjoy a well-traveled professional basketball career, having played multiple seasons both in the WBNA and abroad.
