Nike Signs 2020 WNBA First Draft Pick

After WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert announced Ionescu as the No. 1 pick, the broadcast showed a 12-year-old Ionescu vowing to "keep pushing and one day become a WNBA player".

Speaking from her home in Fairbanks, Alaska, she said it was great to be able to be drafted with two teammates. While Sabally and her OR teammates did not get the opportunity to play in the NCAA tournament, tomorrow could be a big night for them in the WNBA draft.

Ruthy Hebard was drafted as the eighth overall pick by the Chicago Sky. She'll be playing for the Atlanta Dream. The regular season was scheduled to start May 15, but training camps and the regular season have been delayed indefinitely.
