University of Washington star Kelsey Plum was selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 WNBA Draft by the San Antonio Stars.
The explosive 5-8 guard graduated as the all-time leading career scorer in NCAA history with 3,527 points.
Plum, the Naismith Trophy, AP, and Pac-12 Players of the Year, averaged a whopping 31.7 points on 43 percent shooting from three to lead the Huskies to a 29-6 record this year and the NCAA tournament’s Sweet 16.
Her 1,109 points in 2016-17 broke the single-season NCAA scoring record.
“I told my mom when I was 10 years old that I wanted to play in the WNBA, and for that to come true, that’s one of those moments you dream about your entire life,” said Plum told reporters. “I’m really excited and grateful for the opportunity and will make the most of it.”
A high school star at La Jolla Country Day (CA), Plum averaged 27.1 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 3.7 steals as a senior, compiling a 103-22 record in her career and winning the Division IV state title in 2011-12.
In the WNBA next fall, Plum will be joining a San Antonio Stars team that was led by top scorer Kayla McBride (Notre Dame), a 5-11 guard who averaged 17.1 points and 4 rebounds last season.
