As a biography, Latasha Byears was born on August 12, 1973 in Memphis, Tennessee so her age is 35. She went to high school in Arlington and then attended DePaul University in Chicago averaging 22.8 points.
Byears debuted in WNBA with Sacramento Monarchs and performed pretty well for the next four years. She has also been involved in a lot of controversy for her typical rough play. After that, she was transferred to Los Angeles Sparks.
