Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The Chicago Sky signed guard Epiphanny Prince
to a multi-year contract extension on Friday.

also shot an impressive 90 percent from the free throw line and 44 percent
from the field.
In addition, the Rutgers product became the first WNBA player since 1997 to
score 30 points in three straight games.
"I have been excited to play for the Chicago Sky since the day I was drafted
and couldn't think of a better place to continue my career," Prince said.
"I am extremely grateful for the opportunity that Pokey and Michael Alter have
given me. Having such a great organization, coaching staff and teammates makes
me eager to get this season started. I look forward to playing in front of
great fans and bringing this city a championship."
The Sky's fourth overall pick in the 2010 WNBA Draft, Prince has averaged 13.5
points, 2.9 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 94 career games (54 starts).
Prince will miss seven Sky regular season games between June 4 and June 30 to
compete in the EuroBasket Women 2013 Championships in fulfillment of her
contract obligation to the Russian national team.
