The Chicago Sky have selected Cal's Gennifer Brandon with the 22nd pick of the 2014 WNBA Draft.
Wows: Have you seen her jump before? When she does so, she goes very high in the air. She uses that altitude to grab many basketballs that come off the rim. It's quite enjoyable to watch. Obviously, Chicago has identified rebounding as an area of improvement and Brandon, though not exactly hyped up as such, does that as well or better than almost anyone else in the nation.
Wonders: The major question for her as a prospect might be her slight frame. Will that pose a problem for her on the boards in the WNBA?
Worries: The real challenge for Brandon as a prospect statistically speaking is her rather low scoring efficiency. I once joked with Cal fans that she seemed to make the crazy off-balance shots that required amazing feats of athleticism better than the standard shot at the rim. If she can just continue to work on finishing after a senior season that was interrupted by injury and personal issues, she could become a contributor.
