It's a couple of days after Halloween, but the official WNBA draft lottery ping pong balls will play a trick or provide a treat to three teams today. Either the Tulsa Shock, Chicago Sky or Minnesota Lynx will come away with the number one pick in the 2011 WNBA draft, most likely UConn's two time national player of the year Maya Moore.
