The 2013 WNBA Draft will make history tonight as the world’s top female basketball prospects will be selected live on prime time television for the first time in the league’s 17-year history. Coverage and analysis of the first round will air live on ESPN2 beginning at 7 p.m. from ESPN in Bristol, Conn.
Former Sequoyah standout Angel Goodrich will no doubt have an express interest in the goings on. Goodrich, who left Kansas as the Jayhawks' all-time leader in assists and also owns the Allen Fieldhouse record (men and women) for assists in a single game, is projected to be the New York Liberty’s choice at the fifth spot in the first round. Draftsite.com has her as the Seattle Storm’s pick at sixth (draftsite.com).
Another, wnbamockdraft.blogspot.com, has her 16th, the fourth pikck of the second round going to San Antonio.
The Phoenix Mercury will draft first and are expected to select Baylor center Britney Griner. The Tulsa Shock will pick third and should wind up with whichever All-American player is left from the Big 3 -- Delaware forward Elena Delle Donne or Notre Dame guard Skylar Diggins, although Markel Walker, a forward from UCLA, also looms as a possibility.
