if they didn't include World cup but she was never put on a World cup team (thanks Geno). Seven of the 11 with those four championships are from UConn-the others Swoopes (Texas Tech), Catchings (Tennessee), Cooper (USC), and Griner (Baylor). Geno was on this selection committee again as well.

Ruth did win a Eurocup Championship for the Greek team Athinaikos in 2010 and I am not sure too many of those 11 players accomplished that. Still Ruth is on a more elite list of champions who also earned the WNBA MVP for the chammpionship and NCAA MOP for the championship which include only Swoopes, Ruth, Cash, Taurasi, Moore, Candace Parker, and now Stewart. BTW Candace Parker also has never played on a World Cup team which is hard to understand unless it's because she didn't play at UConn.

Edited to add Candace Parker: 2006 & 7 MOP & 2016 MVP. She also won 2 Gold medals.
