Elena Delle Donne

“This is a phenomenal team I’m joining, mentors who will help me out along the way,” Delle Donne said. “I’ll learn a ton from these players. We definitely have a great team. I felt I was a good puzzle piece for this team. You don’t say where you want to go before it was happening, but Chicago was my pick and I wanted to go there really badly.” – foxsports

The Chicago Sky selected highly recruited Elena Delle Donne out of Delaware as the No. 2 pick in the Draft! 6-foot-5 Delle Donne can play three positions! She finished second in the NCAAW averaging 26 points per game last season with 8.5 rebounds per game, and finished fifth all in Women’s NCAA history with a career 3,039 points!

Skyler Diggins

“When I entered Notre Dame we had lost in the first round of the tournament the year before,” Diggins said. “At the end of my career we had brought the program back to an elite level. I’m looking forward to get to Tulsa and show my leadership skills and do whatever Coach Klopp wants me to do.” – foxsports

The undeniably attractive Skyler Diggins out of Notre Dame was selected No. 3 by the Tulsa Shock! Diggins can play many positions, and is very well rounded! She averaged 17.1 points, 6.1 assists and 3.1 steals per game last season! Diggins made a huge impact and led Notre Dame from a non-factor to the Final Four three years in a row!
