About Jocelyn Willoughby
Jocelyn Willoughby, a forward for the WNBA’s New York Liberty, is entering her second professional season. Willoughby wasted no time establishing her footprint in the WNBA’s leadership ranks, becoming the league’s only rookie representative in the Women’s National Basketball Players Association. Additionally, Jocelyn, with the support of New York Liberty leadership, is committed to bettering the community around her through social justice action, policy reform and youth development.
A graduate of the University of Virginia, Jocelyn was a four-year starter for the Cavaliers women’s basketball team, as well as an accomplished student and leader on campus. Such continued excellence on the court and in the classroom garnered Willoughby a long-list of awards including: the 2019-20 Kay Yow Award winner, CoSIDA Academic All-America Division I women’s basketball third team, WBCA All-America team honorable mention, All-ACC First Team and UVA’s Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
Willoughby was born and raised in East Orange, N.J., and is the Liberty’s only active player to come from the Tri-State area. At just 22 years-old, she exemplifies great promise not only on the court, but in the greater community.
