2023 WNBA Draft Version 1.0

aliyah boston of south carolina

Since releasing the 2021 WNBA Mock Draft Version 1.0, I’ve gotten to thinking about looking at future WNBA Mock Drafts just because there is is simply so much talent coming out these next few years. I released the 2022 WNBA Mock Draft Version 1.0 yesterday and now we move onto the year 2023.

These players are currently sophomores and have a year under their belt. There are many talented sophomores currently in college and some of them have started to play really well. Since they are just sophomores, they have a chance to keep growing and getting better.

I thought it would be fun to see right now just where certain players would be taken in a WNBA Draft. Obviously, since this draft will take place two years from now, we don’t know the draft order or what teams will be on the clock. Just like the 2022 WNBA Mock Draft Version 1.0, I plan on releasing an updated version next year so we can see which players fell or increased their stock. Since it is 2023, I will release another updated version in 2023 as well.

I will have the 2024 WNBA Mock Draft come out tomorrow and will conclude this fun WNBA Mock Draft exercise. I hope you enjoy these since the talent of these college players keep getting better every year.

Women’s College Basketball Players Rankings – Class by Class! Week 7

Naz Hillmon of Michigan

We are now reaching the halfway point of the women’s college basketball season and it’s been a roller coaster of a season so far. More postponements and cancellations occurred last week BUT there were still plenty of great competition with upsets, almost upsets and great match ups all around. This season, it seems the SEC and Big 10 currently have great competition and have several great teams in their respective conferences. We should also give some appreciation for Texas A&M who are 11-0 and have beaten great teams along the way. Their seniors are making sure they leave a lasting impression behind.
