drops a little W Draft Anticipation:

We still have one-fourth of the calendar year before the 2013 WNBA Draft takes place on April 15 (televised on ESPN2 during prime time, 8pm ET). But as the college season is winding through conference schedules and teams are positioning for NCAA Tournament consideration, yes, it is time to begin examining who might be the top prospects for the upcoming draft.

Tough news for San Antonio — looks like our fears were confirmed: San Antonio Silver Stars Forward Sophia Young suffers knee injury overseas in Chinese playoff game

In the battle of the Montanas, it’s the Bobcats who move into the semis of the Big Sky tourney, 68-59.

Keep your eye on Sacramento State (13-17, 7-9 Big Sky) next year — they’ve stunk in the past, but they’re improving. AND, they upset Eastern Washington (16-14, 10-6), 71-61, and are in the semis.
