The 2013 WNBA Draft concluded in Bristol, Connecticut on April 15th, with a new wave of WNBA stars entering the league.

Griner will headline this draft class, but do not sleep on the very talented Skylar Diggins. Diggins was a four-year star at Notre Dame, who rapper Lil Wayne is a huge fan of. Fans who followed Kelly Farris at UConn, now just have to buy Connecticut Sun tickets to watch their favorite Huskie kill it in the WNBA. The WNBA should be excited about the new talent that is coming into the league from this draft.
