UConn's Mosqueda-Lewis and Stokes headed to WNBA Draft

UConn seniors Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Kiah Stokes are among 12 players who have accepted invitations to attend Thursday's WNBA Draft at Mohegan Sun Arena.

UConn and California, which the duo of Brittany Boyd and Reshanda Gray, are the only schools with more than one player headed to the draft.

The other players who will be in attendance at the draft are DePaul's Brittney Hrynko, Iowa's Samantha Logic, Notre Dame's Jewell Loyd, Wake Forest's Dearica Hamby, Aleighsa Welch of South Carolina, Tennessee's Isabelle Harrison, Elizabeth Williams of Duke and Minnesota's Amanda Zahui B.

The first round, which will air live on ESPN2, begins shortly after 7 p.m. with the final two rounds set to follow beginning at 8 p.m.

Seattle has the No. 1 and 3 picks while the Connecticut Sun has the fourth pick.

Interesting to see a junior and a first-year student enter the draft this year. First time ever that the women's draft was not all seniors, no?

There are 19 year old Europeans in draft more years than not. Candace Parker gave up her final season at Tennessee to enter draft although she was there for four years with redshirt season. Both Minnesota and Notre Dame players were enrolled in school for three years each.
