New York: The future stars of the WNBA would find out where their playing careers would continue and that was the case for Villanova star Maddy Siegrist, who led the NCAA in scoring and broke all of the scoring records on the Main Line.

Back on March 27, Maddy declared for the draft.

It would not take long before we heard Maddy’s name called by WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert & it would be the 3rd overall pick to the Dallas Wings.

Dallas’ Reaction:

Following the draft, Maddy Siegrist would open up about being drafted.

Siegrist said “It’s a dream come true. I can’t even put into words right now. You’ve got a million things going through your mind. But I’ve been surrounded by good people, good teammates, and I wouldn’t be here without any of them”.

Later on, in the post-draft press conference, Maddy was asked did she consider going back to Villanova for an extra year.

Maddy said, “I love Villanova. That’ll be home forever. But unfortunately nothing lasts forever, and I feel like God had opened a door, and it was time for me to walk through”.
