Ready for the WNBA?

Oklahoma State's Toni Young, a former Del City standout, has been invited to the WNBA Draft and will almost certainly be selected in the first round. Here are several other prospects with local ties who may have their name called Monday night.

Angel Goodrich

One of the top point guards in the Big 12, the Sequoyah-Tahlequah product averaged 13.7 points, 7.21 assists and 2.79 steals per game, was a first-team All-Big 12 selection and helped lead Kansas to the Sweet 16. Though she stands just 5-4, Goodrich's playmaking ability could make her a first-round pick.

Alyssia Brewer

A 6-3 post and Sapulpa product, Brewer began her career at Tennessee before transferring to UCLA, where she averaged 11.1 points and 7.7 rebounds per game as a senior. Possible second- or third-round selection.

Kevi Luper

The Adair and Oral Roberts product was an all-around contributor at guard, ranking in the top 5 in the Southland Conference in scoring (19 points per game), steals (2.7 per game), 3-point field-goal percentage (38.3) and free throw percentage (87.5). The first-team All-Southland selection is a potential second- or third-round pick.

Taleya Mayberry

A 5-6 guard from Tulsa Washington and the University of Tulsa, Mayberry earned first-team All-Conference USA honors after ranking second in the league with 18.7 points per game while averaging 3.6 assists and 2.4 steals per game. Mayberry, who is the daughter of former NBA player Lee Mayberry, could be a second- or third-round pick.
