Former Palo Verde and Pima College standout Sydni Stallworth was recently selected the Women’s Universal Basketball Association Western Conference Player of the Year.
The WUBA is in its seventh season of operation. Its mission is to increase the possibility of prospects to get noticed by WNBA teams or professional teams overseas.
Stallworth, a member of the Nor-Cal Raiders in the WUBA, was a first-team NJCAA Division II All-American and ACCAC Division II Player of the Year each of her two seasons (2015-16 and 2016-17) with Pima before transferring to play her final two seasons at Alaska-Anchorage. Pima finished her freshman season ranked No. 3 in the country.
The 5-foot-3-inch guard averaged 9.7 points and 3.2 rebounds per game as a senior at Alaska-Anchorage in 2018-19. She started 27 of the Sea Wolves’ 33 games. The program went 57-8 in her two seasons there.

Tucsonans know and love Syd for all the years of highlights she’s provided us! 🧡
