Journeyers Continue WNBA Journey

Congratulations to Journeyers Lindsey Harding & Alison Bales who were selected in the 1st round of the WNBA Draft today.

Harding went 1st overall to the Phoenix Mercury and was then traded to the Minnesota Lynx. The trade allows Harding to avoid competing for playing time with Diana Taurasi and pairs her with bona fide superstar Siemone Augustus.

Bales went 9th overall to the Indiana Fever where she will share the paint with Tamika Whitmore.

But perhaps the biggest story is Ivory Latta, projected to 2nd in Nancy Lieberman's mock draft, slipping all the way to No. 11.

Good luck Journeyers.

Interesting... the draft is supposedly live on ESPN2, but it isn't on here in Chocolatetown. Maybe only the first round was televised?

Anyway, more ACC players off the board in Round Two: Maryland's Shay Doron to New York, UNC's Camille Little to San Antonio.
