Brittney Griner is one of a list of 12 prospects invited to attend the 2013 WNBA Draft presented by State Farm, which will be held on Monday, April 15, at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Conn.

Joining Griner at the draft will be Elena Delle Donne (Delaware), Skylar Diggins (Notre Dame) , Alex Bentley (Penn State), Layshia Clarendon (California), Kelly Faris (Connecticut), Tayler Hill (Ohio State), Lindsey Moore (Nebraska), Sugar Rodgers (Georgetown), Tianna Hawkins (Maryland) and Toni Young (Oklahoma State) and Kelsey Bone (Texas A&M).

A 6'8" native of Houston, Griner finished her collegiate career ranked first all time in Women's NCAA Division 1 history in blocks (748) and dunks (18), and second in points (3,283) and double-figure scoring games (146 of 148). Her blocks total actually paces both women and men - topping the 564 of Mississippi State's Jarvis Varnado -- while her 18 dunks account for 54.5 percent of the 33 total dunks by college women.

The Phoenix Mercury holds the top pick in the WNBA Draft presented by State Farm for the third time in franchise history. In 2004 the Mercury used the No. 1 pick to select Diana Taurasi from the University of Connecticut and in the 2007 Draft they chose Duke's Lindsey Harding. Rounding out this year's top five picks are the Chicago Sky (second), Tulsa Shock (third), Washington Mystics (fourth) and the New York Liberty (fifth).

The 2013 WNBA Draft will make history as it will be televised on prime time television for the first time in the league's 17-year history. ESPN2 will provide coverage and analysis of the first round beginning at 8 p.m. ET from ESPN in Bristol, Conn. ESPNU will air the second and third rounds beginning at 9 p.m. ET. The telecast will also be available online at WatchESPN.com and on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app. Host Kevin Negandhi, analysts Rebecca Lobo and Carolyn Peck, along with reporters Holly Rowe and LaChina Robinson, will handle draft coverage duties throughout the night.

WNBA.com, in addition to providing comprehensive draft-day coverage, will serve as the web destination for fans who want to track top prospects throughout the Draft.

Besides Griner, four other Lady Bear seniors are draft eligible including Kimetria Hayden, Jordan Madden, Brooklyn Pope and Destiny Williams.
