Dallas Wings draft Azura Stevens sixth in the 2018 WNBA Draft

NCAA Womens Basketball: AAC Conference Tournament-USF vs Connecticut David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Wings drafted Connecticut forward Azura Stevens sixth in the 2018 WNBA Draft, Stevens was a redshirt junior and played one season for the Huskies in 2017-18 where they made the Final Four. Even though she didn’t start many games for UConn in her lone season there, that didn’t stop Dallas from drafting her in the first round. She averaged 14.7 points while playing just under 21 minutes a game.

Stevens spent her first two college seasons (2014-16) at Duke where she quickly became one of the ACC’s best players. She averaged 19.1 points in her sophomore year at Duke while playing 31 minutes a game. So this is probably a better reflection of what she can provide at an absolute statistical level.

Stevens will provide Dallas with additional help in the low post, but she will compete for time against Glory Johnson and Liz Cambage.
