    That has to be a very promising sign.

    Re: Lacey invited to attend WNBA draft

    Is she the first ISU player to be invited? Will she be the first to be drafted?

    OUTSTANDING...

    Holy cow I think I just got excited for the WNBA draft.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    Plenty have been drafted:

    Francis (New York 2000 2nd round #13: 29th overall)
    Frese (Utah 2000 3rd round #3: 35th overall)
    Taylor (Minnesota 2001 4th round #7: 55th overall)
    Welle (Cleveland 2002 2nd round #15: 31st overall)
    Gahan (New York 2002 3rd round #14: 46th overall)
    Wilson (Connecticut 2003 3rd round #7: 34th overall)
    O'Neil (Sacramento 2005 3rd round #4: 30th overall)
    Medders (Indiana 2007 2nd round #9: 22nd overall)

    Additionally, Brittany Wilkins wasn't drafted but managed to hang around the Sacramento roster for a couple seasons, mostly spent on IR.

    I don't know if an ISU player has ever been invited to attend. Lacey has an outside shot at being ISU's first ever first-round pick, but she's more likely a 2nd-rounder.

    Due to recent contraction of both rosters and teams as well as the fact that the league has been around long enough to have a fully established base of veterans, it is pretty hard to make a roster anymore.

    Re: Lacey invited to attend WNBA draft

    Why would they invite her as one of 14 if she's a 2nd rounder? Honest question.

    There are only 12 teams.

    Re: Lacey invited to attend WNBA draft

    Great find MRed. I wish the best for her; she deserves it.

    I also think having her make a roster would be beneficial for ISU as well.

    Anyone hear if she will be doing the 3 pt contest?

    BF has said he has been getting calls about Lacey from Pro scouts.

    .
    Anyone actually played besides Francis and Freese ? If I'm not mistaken, the others were drafted but they were cut by the teams before the season began.

    I think they were the only two draftees to play. Wilkins might have seen action in a game or two.

    Brittany Wilkins has been our most successful Cyclone alum in the WNBA.

    Respectfully disagree. Only one Cyclone has seen significant WNBA playing time, and it wasn't her.

    That's fine, everyone has their opinion, and I respect yours.
    Brittany Wilkins is the only Cyclone to last more than a season in the WNBA. She was with the Monarchs for two seasons, and started a third with San Antonio before being released.
