For only the third time in school history, the Iowa State women’s basketball team has had multiple players taken in the WNBA Draft. Aplington native Chelsea Poppens went in the middle of the second round last night, taken by the Seattle Storm with the 18th pick. Fellow Iowa State senior Anna Prins was also taken in the second round, going to the Connecticut Sun with the 23rd pick.

The Seattle Storm also picked Iowa State’s Alison Lacey in the WNBA Draft in 2010. Prins is the second Iowa State player picked by Connecticut, following Lindsey Wilson in 2003.
