WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- WWAY is proud to announce former Wolfpack stand-out and WNBA All-Star Chasity Melvin will sit along side John Rendleman for the "Full Court Press" on WWAY NewsChannel 3 at 11 p.m this season.

Melvin is a graduate of Lakewood High School in Sampson County, where she won a state championship in 1994.

She went onto have a stellar collegiate and pro career that spanned several seasons, including a Final Four appearance in 1998 with the NC State Wolfpack and Coach Kay Yow.

She made history scoring 37 points in the semifinal game, a record that was just recently broken. Chasity ranks fourth in school history for career points (2,042) and third in rebounds (1,020). She is the only player in NC State history to lead in field goal percentage all four years.

As she proclaimed to her mother when she was only in the 4th grade, Chasity did become a professional basketball player. She was the No. 2 pick in the ABL Draft selected by the Philadelphia Rage in 1998. After the ABL folded, Chasity became the 11th pick in the 1999 WNBA Draft to the Cleveland Rockers. In 2002, Chasity was selected as an All-Star.

In 2004, Chasity was the 2nd pick in the Dispersal Draft by the Washington Mystics. Traded to the Chicago Sky in 2008, Chasity returned to the Mystics in 2010 and 2011.

Chasity finished her last season in the WNBA in 2012 ranked No. 2 in offensive rebounds, fourth in total rebounds, fourth in offensive rebounds per 40 minutes and ninth in rebounds per 40 minutes.
