Kelsey Plum goes No. 1 in WNBA draft

NEW YORK (AP) - Kelsey Plum is the No. 1 pick in the WNBA draft, going to the San Antonio Stars on Thursday night.

The Washington guard, who set the NCAA career scoring record, is the first player from the school to be taken first. The Stars finished with the worst record last season and held the top pick for the first time in franchise history. Plum finished her college career with 3,527 points.

It's the second straight year that the Stars have drafted a guard. They took Moriah Jefferson with the No. 2 pick last season.

The draft was held in an event space in New York with WNBA President Lisa Borders announcing the picks from a deejay booth.

Washington teammate Chantel Osahor was drafted by the Chicago Sky with the 21st pick.
