2014 WNBA Draft - Round 2, Pick 3: Minnesota Lynx select West Virginia's Asya Bussie

With the third pick in the second round, the Minnesota Lynx select West Virginia center Asya Bussie.

Wows: Bussie is an outstanding rebounder, which should translate well to the WNBA, as well as a rugged post scorer who gets to the free throw line at an extremely high rate. Her shot blocking ability and instincts on defense make her a potential defensive presence for a team that certainly doesn't need more scoring.

Wonders: You have to wonder how much her injury history will matter as she moves forward. She was coming off a redshirt year this season and did an outstanding job, but - as we've seen far too often - these things can have lingering effects.

Worries: The one knock against her is that if you take away the free throw rate, she's not otherwise a very efficient scorer.
