well, it wasn't exactly first round, but she did get selected by the Sparks. seems like a good fit for her; they need 3 pt. shooting guards.

CONGRATS, TALIA!

I was kind of disappointed that Jenny didn't select Talia for her second pick.  That might have helped bring some UW fans over to the Storm.

i'm glad she got drafted.  That must have seemed like an eternity.

I was pretty shocked that the Storm passed on her in the third round. A friend of mine suggested, however, that after what happened last year maybe Alisha didn't want to risk facing the same kind of backlash if the Storm ended up cutting Talia. We also have a handful of 3s already on the roster--Clark is not going anywhere. I doubt O'Hea is either. Stewie can also play the 3. Then we also have KML, even though Talia has way more upside than she does.

I really thought she would land in Indiana. She would have fit in great there. Then again, lots of teams can use a 6'2" small forward (who can also play power forward) with the ability to score from anywhere and is an elite defender. Talia is the only player in UW history to finish her career ranked in the top 5 for both points and rebounds. She is a next level player. I just hope Agler (whom we all know has no idea what to do with rookies) gives her a real chance.

Here is a great article about how she is continually overlooked and underestimated and how she and her teammates used some of that as motivation in the NCAA tourney: Talia Walton: The Story of an Under Dawg
