  • Oregon’s Dominance - There’s no way around it, the 2020 WNBA Draft revolve around rival Oregon, who will likely have the top two selections in guard Sabrina Ionescu and forward Satou Sabally. That much is just about set in stone. The Ducks could also see forward Ruthy Hebard go off the board in the top ten picks, on what would be a celebratory night for a team who’s National Championship hopes got derailed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Move Over UCONN - The Huskies dominance over the world of women’s college basketball has slowly been taking a hit and in terms of the WNBA Draft, UCONN could have their first player taken the latest in the draft (mid-to-late 1st Round) since 2017, when they didn’t have a player go until the 3rd Round. More parity across the ranks is beginning to change the landscape of the professional game as well now.
