Coaches, GMs tab Mc­Cowan for the top pick in mock draft

New Haven Register (Sunday) (New Haven, CT) - - SPORTS -

NEW YORK — The As­so­ci­ated Press polled a panel of WNBA coaches and gen­eral man­agers for a mock draft of the two rounds this spring. Pan­elists were lim­ited to col­lege se­niors and el­i­gi­ble for­eign play­ers, and they could not of­fer a pick for their own team. While last sea­son there was a clear-cut No. 1 in A’ja Wil­son, there is no con­sen­sus top pick this year. The top three picks re­mained the same from the first mock draft with Teaira Mc­Cowan, Asia Durr and Kalani Brown go­ing 1-2-3.

FIRST ROUND

1. Las Ve­gas: Teaira Mc­Cowan, Mis­sis­sippi State. The Aces fran­chise has the No. 1 pick for the third year in a row and can add a dom­i­nant post player to com­ple­ment Wil­son.

2. New York: Asia Durr, Louisville. The Lib­erty have many holes to fill. Get­ting a scor­ing guard who can cre­ate her own shot would help.

3. In­di­ana: to the Sun.

10. Wash­ing­ton: Kristine Anigwe, Cal­i­for­nia. Would give Mys­tics an­other ath­letic post player who knows how to score and re­bound.

11. At­lanta:

pros.
