Rebecca Lynn Hammon was born in Rapid City, South Dakota.
She is a natural-born citizen of the United States and became a naturalized Russian citizen in 2008.
She competed with the Russian women’s national basketball team at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.
Hammon learned to dribble a basketball at a very young age, playing Nerf ball with her older brother and father, and continued to hone her skills on her home court.
She was raised as a devout Christian.
Hammon played basketball at Stevens High School in her hometown of Rapid City, South Dakota.

As a senior, she was voted the South Dakota Player of the Year after averaging 26 points, 4 rebounds and 5 steals per game.
She graduated in 1995, and also was voted female class athlete by her graduating class.
Despite the accolades, she drew little attention from college basketball recruiters, who considered her too small and too slow.
She eventually grabbed the attention of a Colorado State assistant coach, and she committed to the Rams.
Hammon truly flourished in her college years as an athlete.
She helped her team advance to the NCAA Tournaments’ Sweet Sixteen by scoring 33-3 record in the 1998-99 season.
Not to mention, that same season, Becky got the WAC Mountain Division player of the year title, even surpassing the University of Utah’s player, Keith Van Horn as the WAC’s all-time leading scorer.
Even after that, she kept making records after records, including 2740 points per game, field goals of 918, 539 free throws, 365 three-point field goals, and 538 assists, setting Colorado State records.
Similarly, on November 12, 2004, Colorado State inducted her into the University’s Sports Hall of Fame.
