Tisdale drafted by WNBA’s Chicago Sky
Senior Angela Tisdale became the sixth Baylor player to be selected in the last seven years when the WNBA held its annual amateur player draft Wednesday night.
Tisdale was the 33rd overall pick, going in the third round to the Chicago Sky. A 2007-08 All Big 12 first-team selection and a national player of the year finalist, Tisdale led the Lady Bears in scoring and assists, setting a new program record for career assists earlier this year. She and teammate Rachel Allison each earned honorable mention All-America honors from the Associated Press.
This is the fourth straight year a Lady Bear has been drafted. Previous selections include Sheila Lambert (2002, 1st round), Danielle Crockrom (2002, 1st), Steffanie Blackmon (2005, 3rd) , Sophia Young (2006, 1st) and Bernice Mosby (2007, 1st). Young and Mosby are still active.
Sic ’em, Angela!
