The BCs were definitely expecting one Maryland player to be heading off to a WNBA training camp this summer . . . but two? That's a bonus . . . what a pleasant surprise!
This afternoon, Anjale was selected with the 26th overall pick by the Washington Mystics -- a team notoriously in need of depth at the point guard position.
Minutes later, the Tulsa Shock used the 29th overall pick on Netta. The Shock is a team that could certainly benefit from some help in the post. So, while it's far from home, Tulsa could be a good opportunity for Netta.
With WNBA rosters capped at 11 players, it's tough to make a team these days, but both Anjale and Netta have each been given a real chance to make one. Let's hope they do!
Congratulations and good luck, Anjale and Netta! You were drafted by the WNBA . . . now that's cool!
