Andrea Lloyd played basketball at the University of Texas, after playing high school ball in Moscow, Idaho. She played for the US at the 1988 Olympics, winning a gold medal, and won a gold and bronze medal, respectively, at the 1987 and 1991 Pan American Games. She also competed for the US at the 1985 Universiade, winning silver, and the 1994 World Championships, winning bronze.
With few opportunities for women in the US, Lloyd played in the American Basketball League with the Columbus Quest from 1996-98 and then joined the WNBA in 1999, playing with the Minnesota Lynx for one year. In 2000 she tore her anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which effectively ended her career. She then became a television analyst for the Lynx, and also worked in television with the MTN sports network and the Mountain Wets Conference. In 2007 Lloyd was inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame.
