The Mystics went inside and outside for their second and third round picks in the WNBA Draft. They took Myisha Hines-Allen out of Louisville with the 19th overall pick, then selected Rebecca Greenwell of Duke with the 31st overall pick.
Hines-Allen was a third team All-American this season, averaging 14.3 points and 9.6 rebounds per game while helping guide the Cardinals to the Final Four.
She’s a tad undersized but has a great knack for rebounding and scoring in the paint. If she can add to her range on the pro level, she could be a steal for Washington.
Greenwell was one of the top shooters in the country last season, shooting 42.9 percent from deep and finishing runner-up in the women’s 3-point shootout in March.
She, along with Mystics’ first round pick Ariel Atkins, should give the Mystics’ a much-needed boost in perimeter shooting. Last season the Mystics had the third-worst 3-point shooting percentage in the league.
