Mercer's Kahlia Lawrence selected in WNBA Draft

She knows the biggest proving ground for women's basketball is to make it in the WNBA. She leaves U of L as the school's second all-time leading rebounder (1,151 rebounds) and third all-time scorer (2,028 points). The franchise, a year removed from its Tulsa relocation, needed to hit on its picks to build up a playoff roster.

Oklahoma State's Loryn Goodwin (32) was drafted by the Dallas Wings in the WNBA Draft Thursday night.

She averaged 20.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 3.5 steals per game this season.

"He definitely liked that I was able to get up and down the floor quickly", Atkins said, "but he wanted me to extend my range from the three-point line".

Despite suffering an ACL injury that will keep her out of the 2018 season, Baylor's Australian senior Kristy Wallace has been selected by the Atlanta Dream with the 16 overall pick of the WNBA Draft.

"We have to improve in three specific areas, we must improve our overall defensive efficiency rating", she said.

The Las Vegas Aces, who will play their first season after moving from San Antonio in the offseason, have the first pick and are widely expected to take SC forward/center A'ja Wilson.

Las Vegas: A'ja Wilson, South Carolina.

"I didn't know what to expect coming in because these are such big names", Billings said after being selected.

"It's a really exciting time", Wallace said. In February, Gulich happened to have one of her most impressive games of the season while in Tempe, with a career-high 36 points, including 30 after halftime.

Said Gulich, who will report to training camp April 29: "I feel relief right now". Scaife finished with 13 points on 6-of-13 shooting while no other Scarlet Knights player scored more than seven in the 82-57 defeat. She has the size, quickness and skills to be a strong defender even against the WNBA's wings and shooting guards, who typically are the most hard players to guard. In addition to leading the Gamecocks to the 2017 NCAA National Championships, Wilson was undefeated in her four SEC Tournaments as SC became the first program to win four consecutive titles at the event. She was also one of three UConn players selected in the first round of this draft. Her impact with the Greater Miami Conference member school is still very significant. The home opener in Las Vegas is a week later on May 27th and will be the first step in expanding the WNBA to a new fan base both in Las Vegas and beyond.
