    Re: Poppens & Prins in WNBA Mock Draft

    Would love to see Pop up here as a Lynx. I doubt if McWilliams-Franklin will be back next year. I just wonder if Pop's hard work will be able to overcome her athletic ceiling at this level. Nobody works harder! I have to say her bruiser game will fit right in in today's WNBA.

    Interesting. IMO, Anna will need a much improved year over last. Indications are she's healthy for the first in a long time. I'm really pulling for her and anxious to see what she can do.

    Anna's size and outside shooting ability will probably make some drafters curious enough to test the waters.

    Re: Poppens & Prins in WNBA Mock Draft

    I can see that the Lynx wants her. She's the type of player that the Lynx needs: someone who's not afraid of attacking the basket to give another threat besides Whalen and Brunson. Adair and Harris are not the type of player

    Re: Poppens & Prins in WNBA Mock Draft

    If this team and Pop have a big year, she may go higher than that. I would take her over Carolyn Davis.

    The College Sports Madness site has Pop rated #5 overall in their draft rankings! WNBA Draft Rankings and Profiles | College Sports Madness

    Ironically Joslyn Tinkle who was very highly sought after and chose Stanford over ISU among other is rated at 34 in this. Guess we know which program can develop the players!

    Tinkle would have probably started at ISU - I look for her to have a big year at Stanford this year. That is the problem with Stanford and other schools like them, they fill their 15 player roster, which means 10 people on the bench....Some 4 and 5 star players at TN and Stanford almost never see the court. WBB should really go to 13 scholly rosters.

    Title IX has almost guaranteed that won't happen. When looking for equitable number of overall scholarship opportunities with the inequities that football causes, that is why you have more schollies in WBB and more women's sports.

    Some good stuff from Fennelly and Brenda VanLengen. "Every WBNA team has also contacted ISU about Poppens, Fennelly said."
