With the first pick in the 2017 WNBA Draft in New York City, the San Antonio Stars selected Kelsey Plum of Poway.
Plum is a high scoring guard, who’s ability to “get baskets” should make an immediate impact on the Stars, a team that was 7-27 last season.
Plum, who attended La Jolla Country Day High School, just finished an historic career at the University of Washington. Plum set the NCAA career and single season scoring records, in her senior year she averaged 31.7 points per game. Plum won numerous player of the year awards, including the John R. Wooden Award and the Associated Press Player of the year.
The 22 year old Plum is 5’9, she is just the 4th player in WNBA history to be drafted first overall yet be under 6 feet tall.
