Her number, 25, has been retired from the CSU Women's Basketball team and hangs proudly in Moby Arena. A well-deserved honor for the stellar player.

During a game in the 2020 season, Spurs Head Coach, Greg Popovich was ejected; Hammon stepped up to become the first acting Head Coach in NBA history.
