2010 WNBA Draft Picks


The WNBA Draft has been always one of the most anticipated events in WNBA as the association would be able to see fresh talents show off their skills and prove to the world that they are worthy of being a WNBA player, but it’s not that easy because many women from all over the world are talented enough to enter this league and only the best of the best are chosen to enter this league.

The first pick in the 2010 WNBA Draft is Tina Charles from the University of Connecticut, who were the champions in the recent NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship against Stanford. She is picked up by the Connecticut Suns. “It is unbelievable,” Charles said when asked what it felt like to be the top draft pick after winning a second straight national championship. “My heart is pounding out of my chest. I am very grateful and this is definitely a dream come true. I’m more interested on what kind of impact I am going to have on the team than being the number one pick.”
