Only 42 names will be called at the WNBA Draft and only 20 or so of the prospects
will be here in Boston, meaning that the rest will have to wait it out at home
and watch on television or here on WNBA.com. Here is what many of them willl be
doing during the Draft and what they're thinking on the biggest day of their professional
Kasha Terry, Georgia Tech
I plan on watching from home.
I wanted to videotape it, but nobody has videotapes anymore, so I don't know how
I'm going to record it. I don't have TiVo unfortunately. I'll find some way to
record it, because there's a lot of people that I've played with that I'd like
to see where they go.
Nikki Blue, UCLA
I'm excited. Hopefully
I won't have any butterflies in my stomach. I mean, I've been trying out for the
WNBA for four years and it all comes down to this. I'm representing my family,
UCLA and the west coast.
Fifi Camara, Marist
I have no idea. I'm probably
going to be watching on TV because I have to go back to campus. I haven't really
thought about it.
Liad Suez-Karni, Villanova
I'll probably sit
at home with my husband and watch it.
Melanie Boeglin, Indiana State
I think I'm just going to watch it at my house with my family and some
of my teammates. We've talked about it.
Crystal Kemp, Kansas
hope to be in front of the TV, hopefully with family and friends around me.
My mom and my dad are gonna be here in Boston and my
boyfriend is gonna be here also.
Christelle N'Garsanet, Missouri
might be in class. Hopefully, somebody will call me or send me a text to tell
me what happens, or I can just run to the computer lab and check.
I get out of class at 11:50 and I think it comes on at 12
my time, so I'm gonna rush home. I'll probably watch it with my teammates.
Grant, Texas Tech
My parents and my grandparents are here in Boston. I'm
Crystal Smith, Iowa
I think my teammates and coaches
are setting up this little party thing in our locker room.
I'm going to be in lab, so my mom and my little sister are going
to be in front of the television watching it for me. I'm sure they will send me
a text and tell me what happens.
Kim Smith, Utah
I'm staying here
in Boston to watch it. Our coaches will be here with us.
I'm probably gonna hang out with some of my friends and sit
around and watch it. I'll probably watch it with Ashley (Allen).
I'll probably be watching with friends and family.
I'll probably be working out. I might watch it, but I'll probably
be too nervous to watch. I think I'd rather just have somebody tell me what happens.
Hager, Norther Iowa
I think we're going to watch it up in the coaches'
offices. Any teammates that want to stop in are free to come.
I always watch the draft. It's something exciting for
women's basketball and that's something that I'm going to put into my schedule.
Duffy, Notre Dame
My mom and dad will be here in Boston, and my sister.
My grandma and aunt and uncle will be up in the seats. My assistant coach ...
there's gonna be a lot of people there. It's going to be pretty exciting. Something
will change after that day.
Tasha Williams, Louisiana Tech
to be watching on TV back at school. Hopefully, my husband will fly down and watch
it with me.
Lindsay Bowen, Michigan State
I'm just going home
and will wait and see what happens.
Alexis Kendrick, Georgia

I'm happy that Sherill will be there.
Sherill Baker, Georgia
Rountree, a former Georgia player, will be there with me, along with Coach Landers
and some friends who live in Boston. My parents won't be able make it.
My family is coming up from Ohio... my mom, grandmother,
sisters and brother and my aunt. It will be a nice crowd and I'm just looking
forward to the experience.
Ambrosia Anderson, B.Y.U.
be watching at home. My friends want to make a big deal out of it and go to bar
or lounge. I'll be watching to see where I'll be going. I'm nervous and excited,
Liz Shimek, Michigan State
I'm excited. In Boston.
I don't know what will happen because the possibilities are endless. It's exciting
to not know where you're going.
Ann Strother, Connecticut

Kerri Gardin, Virginia Tech
I'll probably be in class.
I'm trying to think about it.
Dalila Eshe, Florida
not nervous because my ride through collge has been up and down. It's just amazing
that I've come this far in one year. This wasn't an optipon for me last year,
so it doesn't matter to me where I get picked. I worked hard and have proven I
belong. I just hope for the best.
Zane Teilane, Western Illinois
am nervous, and at the same time, very excited too.
Tye'sha Fluker, Tennessee
course, I'm nervous and excited. I'll just be sitting there crossing my fingers,
waiting for my name to be called.
Kristen Kovesdy, Arizona State
just excited to be here. Realistically, I didn't think this could happen. It is
not Arizona State's style to put up big numbers. So I'm just taking advantage
of this and enjoying the opportunity.
LaToya Davis, Texas Tech
very excited, and also kind of nervous. I just want to keep playing.
Koch, Missouri State
I wll watch at head coach's house. She gets the ESPN

just like everyone else. I have class that day, but hopefully the best will happen
