Ole Miss Women’s Basketball takes a look at their Ole Miss All-American former player and a current member of the WNBA’s Washington Mystics Armintie Price Herrington (BA liberal studies ’07). Click here to watch video interview.
Most fans remember her as a scrappy player from Myrtle, Mississippi who led the Rebels to the 2007 NCAA Elite Eight and was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2007 WNBA Draft. Not too much has changed, she’s still a scrappy ball player, but she’s added radio analyst and SEC Network Plus color commentator to her repertoire.
Herrington is in her ninth season in the WNBA after being drafted by the Chicago Sky in 2007. The No. 3 overall pick, Herrington went on to earn WNBA Rookie of the Year honors and has twice been selected to the WNBA All-Defensive team. After spending the 2014 season in Los Angeles with her former head coach at Ole Miss, Carol Ross, Herrington will spend the 2015 season as a member of the Washington Mystics.
In the offseason Herrington used her basketball knowledge as a member of the Ole Miss women’s basketball radio crew, serving as the color commentator for all road games alongside the voice of Ole Miss women’s basketball, Graham Doty. Herrington also had her hand in some television during the 2014-15 season serving as Ole Miss’ color analyst on SEC Network Plus broadcasts from Tad Smith Coliseum.
Herrington was also honored at Ole Miss’ 2015 SEC Legend and was recognized at the SEC Tournament in Little Rock, Arkansas. Herrington, who was inducted into the M-Club Hall of Fame in 2014, still ranks. No. 3 all-time at Ole Miss with 2,165 career points.
Herrington and her Mystics squad opened the 2015 WNBA season on June 5 when they traveled to Connecticut to take on the Sun, where former Ole Miss great Jennifer Gillom serves as an assistant coach.
