2014 WNBA Draft - Round 1, Pick 6: Washington Mystics select UConn's Stefanie Dolson

The Washington Mystics have selected UConn's Stefanie Dolson with the sixth pick in the 2014 WNBA Draft.

Wows: Stefanie Dolson is arguably the best passing center who has entered the draft in the last decade. With her ability to pass and score from the high post at 6-foot-5 – including a developing three point shot – she's a rare style of player in the women's pro basketball sphere. Defensively, she has hardware saying she's the nation's best and her improved shot blocking ability will help her establish a presence in the paint.

Wonders: How well will she score in the WNBA? She wasn't a high-usage scorer at UConn and in the past most centers see an even lower usage rate once they get to the pros. She has better range than some recent centers in the league, but it will be interesting to see how she's used offensively and whether she'll end up being more of a low-usage facilitator.

Worries: Dolson was not an exceptional offensive rebounder in college and it will be interesting to see how well she does on the boards in the pros.
