“With the first pick in the 2019 WNBA Draft, the Las Vegas Aces selects Notre Dame guard, Jackie Young.”

With that statement, the first round of the WNBA draft began. Young was the first of five Notre Dame players picked in the draft, also the starters of this past season’s Fighting Irish: Young, Arike Ogunbowale, Brianna Turner, Jessica Shepard and Marina Mabrey.

The New York Liberty chose Asia Durr, a dynamic guard from Louisville, as the second pick. Teaira McCowan, a center with a dominant presence in the paint, went to the Indiana Fever.

The Chicago Sky chose versatile guard/forward Katie Lou Samuelson. Dallas used its first pick to add Ogunbowale, the fifth overall selection.
