    Seven SEC Players Taken In 2013 WNBA Draft

    A total of seven SEC women’s basketball players were taken in the 2013 WNBA draft, as the world’s top female basketball prospects were selected live on prime time television for the first time in the league’s 17-year history.  The draft consisted of three rounds of 12 picks each.

    The first round saw Texas A&M’s Kelsey Bone taken as the 5th overall selection by the New York Liberty.  Kentucky’s A’dia Mathies was also taken in the first round as the 10th pick by the Los Angeles Sparks. The SEC has had at least one player taken in the first round of the WNBA Draft since its inception in 1997.   

    The Liberty also took Tennessee’s Kamiko Williams in the second round as the 15th overall selection.  Georgia’s Jasmine Hassell was the 21st pick by the Indiana Fever.

    The third and final round of the draft saw Georgia’s Jasmine James taken by the Seattle Storm as the 30th selection and teammate Anne Marie Armstrong taken next (31st pick) by the Atlanta Dream. Florida’s Jennifer George was taken by the Indiana Fever as the 33rd pick.
