LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Sparks selected Kansas State guard Brittany Chambers with the 22nd pick in the 2013 WNBA Draft on Monday night.

Chambers, a 5-8 guard, is one of only three Kansas State players to earn All-Big 12 First Team honors three times during her collegiate career.  As a senior, she averaged career-highs in points (21.0), rebounds (7.6) and assists (3.3) and was the only player in the Big 12 with 600 points, 200 rebounds and 90 assists. She scored in double figures 30 times, topping 20 points 18 times.   As a junior, she led the Big 12 in three-point field goals made (80) while leading the Wildcats in rebounding (6.2 rpg) and playing a school record 1,247 minutes.  For her collegiate career she appeared in 135 games, averaging 16.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists while shooting .427 from the field (273-640) and .772 from the line (115-149).

“A three-time All-Big 12 First Team player out of Kansas State, Brittany brings a dynamic scoring ability with tremendous offensive skills from the three-point line all the way to the rim,” said Sparks head coach Carol Ross.  “She is a fierce competitor and has a solid knowledge and understanding of the game. She will be an exciting player to watch, and we are thrilled she is joining our Sparks family.”
