WNBA draft hopes to bring excitement back to women's basketball

WNBA draft hopes to bring excitement back to women's basketball

UPDATED: Tuesday, April 16, 2013 - 4:25pm

The WNBA draft wrapped up in Bristol, Connecticut, Monday night and brought a new brand of excitement back to women's basketball.

As projected, Baylor's 6'8" center, Brittney Griner, went to the Phoenix Mercury in the first pick of the draft. The city of Phoenix wasted no time in marketing their newest superstar.

Phoenix revealed a 77-foot banner in the downtown area welcoming Griner to the league. A "Griner 42" jersey is already available for purchase and the  Mercury also "renamed" a roadway near the basketball arena to "Griner Street."

When asked about the pressures of being drafted first over-all and taking her talents to Phoenix, this is what Griner told ESPN:

"There's really no pressure because I'm surrounded by all these great players and I'm going to take advantage of it by learning from them. I don't have to come in and be the focal point, I can just come in and focus on one little thing and whatever that thing is, bring it to the court."

Griner joins former UCONN standout and veteran WNBA player, Diana Taurasi, as a member of the Phoenix Mercury.

Baylor's, Brooklyn Pope was taken in the 28th pick of the draft by the Chicago Sky, while Texas A&M junior, Kelsey Bone was taken fifth by the New York Liberty.
