2014 WNBA Draft - Round 1, Pick 12: Minnesota Lynx select Duke's Tricia Liston

The Minnesota Lynx have selected Duke forward Tricia Liston with the 12th and final pick of the first round of the 2014 WNBA Draft.

Wows: Tricia Liston can really, really shoot the ball. And at 6-foot-1, she should have little problem in continuing to get that shot off against WNBA competition. She makes an already extremely dangerous Lynx offense that much more dangerous.

Wonders: How much does the ball handling ability she showed for Duke this season in Chelsea Gray's absence help her WNBA potential? She won't be needed for ball handling in Minnesota, but in terms of her scoring versatility it could help.

Worries: The only real concern for Liston is how she fits in defensively. Duke played quite a bit of zone defense after Gray's injury, which didn't exactly test Liston much. However, in transition against quicker opponents she really struggled at times. The Lynx don't really lack for defensive players on the roster likely rendering this point moot.
