WNBA Draft: Pair Of National Champion Aggies Go In The Second Round

It's been awhile since the Houston area has had a WNBA team, but that doesn't mean they still aren't big player in producing talent for the rest of the league. Following the Texas A&M Aggies National Championship last week, they had two star players selected in the second round of the WNBA Draft: forward Danielle Adams and guard Sydney Colson.

Colson, who has proven to be a tenacious defender and stellar ball-handler at the point guard spot, was drafted by the Connecticut Sun with the 16th overall pick. However, her tenure with the Sun didn't last very long as she was almost immediately traded to the New York Liberty for guard Kalana Greene. Colson will likely be broken in as Leilani Mitchell's backup.

All-American Adams dropped 30 points on Notre Dame in the NCAA Women's Championship game, and she'll now be plying her trade for the San Antonio Silver Stars. Adams will likely start out behind Sophia Young initially, and while she isn't quite the defender that Colson is at her position, she's definitely a tough post to guard--particularly when you account for her jump stop and fadeaways.
