Jordan Hooper Heading To The WNBA

Posted: Updated:

Alliance grad and Nebraska senior Jordan Hooper becomes just the sixth Husker player to be drafted to the WNBA.

The Big Ten Player of The Year was the first pick in round number two taken by the Tulsa Shock in last night's WNBA Draft.

The Shock also picked up Baylor's Odyssey Simms in round one along with LSU's Theresa Plaisance in round three.

Hooper says she was watching the draft in Lincoln with her friends and says it's a dream come true when she heard her name called.

In addition to Hooper, Simms and Plaisance, the Shock also will feature former Notre Dame All American Skyler Diggins. Diggins is coming off a pretty solid rookie season.

The Shock will also have a new head coach as Fred Williams takes over a young team.
Williams spent the past six seasons with the Atlanta Dream guiding them to three WNBA Finals appearances.
