Maryland’s outstanding Senior class didn’t reach the goals they wanted in their final season together, but one of them did get selected in last week’s WNBA Draft.
Brene Moseley was taken by the Indiana Fever with the ninth pick in the second round, 21st overall. She did nothing but win on the collegiate level at Maryland, fighting back from two ACL surgeries she proved herself to be one of the better playmakers in the Big 10. Moseley showed an innate feel for coming off the bench and immediately taking control of a game, giving the Terps a great weapon that few other teams could match. There was never a drop off when she got on the court and more often than not her ability to set up teammates and score the basketball pushed things in her team’s favor.
I’m blessed and thankful to be drafted to the Indiana Fever. As a child I prayed to God to make it to the WNBA, so this has been a dream come true – Brene Moseley
Her style of play already embodies what the Fever are all about, that ability to pressure ball handlers and force turnovers should help her make an impression in camp. Indiana lost a couple of guards via free agency so there’s definitely an opportunity to land a roster spot, her experience of playing on deep teams should only help her in this situation.
The Fever took Tiffany Mitchell from South Carolina in the first round, so the guard position was clearly a priority. With training camps starting Sunday, Moseley’s quest soon begins.
